Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

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".
