Fort Washington

Fort Washington is an unincorporated area in Prince George's County, Maryland, just south of the Washington D.C. downtown district. The place is named for Fort Washington, completed in 1809 and at the time the only fort protecting Washington, D.C. The remnants of the fort are surrounded by forested Fort Washington Park. The town grew around the fort and today near the fort there are many riverfront homes, two marinas, two community pools, and National Golf Club. Fort Foote, another fortification in the area, was an American Civil War-era wood and earthwork fort built in 1863 that was a part of the wartime defenses of Washington, D.C. Rosecroft Raceway is a harness racing track opened in 1949 and closed in 2010. National Golf Club is the East Coast only Ted Robinson signature golf course.
