My First Home 47 Years Later

My sister flew in from Illinois as I flew from Texas to Maryland to surprise my parents for my birthday! It was the first time I spent my actual birth date with my parents in quite some time. One of the highlights was a return to my first home. 

We took this photo 47 years to the day that my parents brought me to this home after I was born at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (before it merged with Bethesda Naval Hospital).  The house is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Our house was built in the late 1800s and was once a sorority house to girls who attended the National Park Seminary Finishing School, which closed for good in 1945.
