The Lindens, Washington D.C.
2401 Kalorama Rd NW, Washington, DC 20008
The Lindens, also known as the King Hooper House, is an historic house located in the Kalorama Heights neighborhood in Washington, D.C.. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1969. The house was built in Danvers, Massachusetts in 1754 and it was taken down and rebuilt in Washington from 1935–1937.
According to the Washington Post: “The house was dismantled, with each piece numbered, and was shipped to the District in six railroad boxcars. Under the direction of the key architect at Colonial Williamsburg, it was painstakingly reassembled on a concrete foundation, supported by steel beams. The process took nearly three years and included an expansion of about five feet to accommodate modern plumbing — meaning indoor bathrooms.”
