It was one of the most important taverns in the colonial days where the Alexandria Assembly held their meetings and balls. Lafayette, Baron de Kalb and John Paul Jones were a few of the famous people in history that have stayed at the tavern. General and Mrs. Washington attended the last public celebration of Washington's birthday which has held here. A month before his death, Washington reviewed the local troops from the steps and gave his last military command (Alexandria, Virginia)
