The neighborhood is across the street from the Army Navy Country Club. “A lot of military families, including high-ranking officers, have lived here,” said Patty FitzGerald, an original resident and real estate agent. “President Gerald Ford’s daughter, Susan, lived here when the neighborhood was first built.”
Retired administrator Rowena Morris said demographics have changed dramatically. “When I moved here in 1985, there were no kids; it was mostly young professionals. Now it feels like half and half, old and new families.” Original owner Dick Olson, a retired journalist, said the neighborhood has also become more ethnically diverse.
