Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail-War of 1812
—Dumbarton House —In 1814 this was the home of the Charles Carroll family, fiends of President James Madison and his wife, Dolley. Carroll came to the President's House on August 24, as Madison was returning from the defeat at Battle of Bladensburg. Soon word arrived that Dolley should save what she could and flee the city. Piling into carriages, Dolley, family, and servants set off for the relative safety of Georgetown, stopping to collect the family of U.S. Navy Secretary William Jones before arriving here.
