Washington → Happy Retreat

Also known as 'Mordington' and 'The Charles Washington House', originally owned and developed by Charles Washington, the youngest brother of George Washington and the founder of Charles Town. In 1837 George Washington Hammond sold it to the Hon. Isaac R. Douglass who completed the plans for the central section and built a three story brick structure, connecting the two old Washington wings. He renamed the completed mansion 'Mordington', after his ancestral estate in Scotland.
