Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
—A Workplace of Many Generations —Although never part of an extensive agricultural plantation, the Bostwick House property was the workplace of many people over the centuries. The earliest residents, the Piscataway Indians, left some evidence that the area was used for hunting and fishing along the Anacostia River. During the 18th century, Bostwick was home to both enslaved and indentured workers who built the house and outbuildings, tended the gardens and livestock, and performed domestic duties; some of these workers may have also worked in Lowndes' shipbuilding and mercantile enterprises.
