Recollection of Washington Grove
(The Washington Post, Feb. 20, 1999)

Richmond Clapperton, 78, remembers coming to Washington Grove starting in 1923, when his mother bought a summer cottage there. The family would take the train from Washington, through the other railroad towns along the old Baltimore & Ohio line: Takoma Park, Capitol View, Kensington, Garrett Park. "When we'd get off the train in Washington Grove, it was like entering another world," he said. Fifty years ago, Clapperton converted the family cottage to a year-round home for himself and his wife.
