WASHINGTON — Rock Creek Park spans over 1,754 acres and is a natural refuge that offers diverse recreational opportunities and historical sites within the city. The Old Stone House, which dates back to 1765, is the oldest unchanged building in the capital and offers visitors a glimpse into pre-Revolutionary War architecture and life. Peirce Mill stands as a testament to the area's agricultural past. Constructed in the 1820s, the mill was restored to operational status in the 1930s and continues demonstrating traditional milling techniques to the public.
