Abner Cloud House and Mill
The Abner Cloud House is one of the oldest existing structures on the Canal. In 1801 Abner Cloud, Jr., built a random rubble stone house with the help of Italian stonemasons, probably using stone from local quarries.
Today, The Colonial Dames of America, Chapter III, shares the house with the Park and conducts interpretive programs. The house is located on the Canal at Canal Road and Reservoir Road N.W., Washington DC, adjacent to Fletcher’s Boat House.
