Wikipedia Description: Ringgold–Carroll House
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ringgold–Carroll House (also known as the DACOR Bacon House and John Marshall House) is an historic residence located at 1801 F St Northwest, Washington, D.C. Built in 1825, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been adapted as office space by the Diplomatic and Consular Officers Retired (DACOR) organization.
It was built in 1825 for Tench Ringgold, who was one of a three-member presidential commission charged with supervising the restoration of public buildings in the capital following the War of 1812 and burning by the British. He was also still serving as US Marshal in the District of Columbia, having first been appointed under the President James Monroe administration.
From 1832–1833, Chief Justice John Marshall of the United States Supreme Court resided as a boarder with Ringgold in the house. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story also boarded there, and both men considered Ringgold a friend.
In 1835, the house was sold, and a number of prominent people have since lived in the house, including William Thomas Carroll, a clerk at the Supreme Court, for whom the house is also named; Chief Justice Melville Fuller, Senator Joseph Medill McCormick, and Congressman Robert Low Bacon. The Diplomatic and Consular Officers Retired (DACOR) organization now uses the house as office space, and a number of other organizations rent office space in the building as well. The historic property is open to the public only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:30–4:30 p.m. as the "Ringgold Museum".

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

1997 photos: Since 1984, I've lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
From 1981 to 2002, photos were taken using a Pentax ME Super camera.
From 1989 to 2002, I was doing all pictures as prints (instead of slides which I had grown up on).
In 1997, at the age of 40, my photo obsession began and I started taking thousands of photos per year.
In September, 2002, I switched to digital cameras and the number of photos exploded.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Trips this year: North Carolina (Dad), Florida (Mom), using a time share in Arkansas to visit Civil War sites in Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Civil War became my excuse to see places I'd never been to in my life and it was a great motivator for 20 years or so.
