Dr. and Mrs. Milton Eisenhower owned the house 1938-1943; Had house painted white and removed front porch. At the direction of Gen. Marshall, Gen. Eisenhower arrived in Washington two weeks after Pearl Harbor, was met by his brother and taken to Falls Church. He and Mamie spent New Year's Eve 1941 at "Tallwood."
