This historic site contains the reconstructed remnants of an old house and its external kitchen, which are located the top of a hill visible from Metrorail's Blue and Orange lines. The site contains a number of signs and photographs that illustrate and explain the history of the Abingdon Plantation. This 18th - 19th century plantation was associated with both George Washington and his family and the Alexander family, for whom the City of Alexandria is named.
The historical site is open to the public during daytime hours. It is near the south entrance to the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and is between two of the airport's parking garages (Garage B and Garage B/C). Nevertheless, few people visit it.
