The Old and Historic District includes all of the George Washington Memorial Parkway within the City's boundaries with a buffer zone on either side of the parkway.
There are 4 tree lined courtyards with 9 entrances in each which total 242 condominium homes. All units have the convenience of a washer and dryer. The 2 bedroom units all contain a bath and a half.
