The land that Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport occupies today was once part of Abingdon Plantation. Abingdon was the home of George Washington's stepson, John Parke Custis, and birthplace of Washington's beloved granddaughter, Nelly.

Historically intertwined with prominent families of Virginia, Abingdon weathered the Civil War and the end of plantation live. The encroachment of industry finally took its toll on Abingdon, which deteriorated until it burned in 1930. The ruins of the plantation house remain preserved on this hill as a testament to the history of this land.
