Notes
Survey number HABS DC-68
Building/structure dates: 182 initial construction

Significance: The building was witness to important decisions relating to the establishment of the Federal City. Colonel Uriah Forrest had served with Washington in the Revolution. As a leading citizen of Georgetown, partner with Major Benjamin Stoddert, whom the President had entrusted with confidential dealings, he occupied a position of influence. Forest and Stoddert were both "original proprietors". It was a memorable day at 3350 M Street when President Washington was entertained at dinner, following the historic meeting with Commissioners and landowners at Suter's Tavern on March 29th 1791 (See Washington's Diary).
