On this site stood the home of John H. Eaton, U.S. Senator (1818-1829) and Secretary of War under Andrew Jackson (1829-1831). He resigned from the Cabinet after a scandal which reflected on the reputation of his controversial wife, Peggy. He served as Governor of the Territory of Florida (1834-1836) and as Minister to Spain (1836-1840). Eaton retired from public life in 1840. He sold this property in 1843 and lived in Washington, D.C. until his death.
