What was once the site of the Trustees’ Garden is now the ambient Washington Square.
Visitors can sit and sip wine or take a stroll through Washington Square with their pup. Surrounding the square are beautiful historic homes and buildings. These include the International Seamen’s House and the Mulberry Inn, which is now The Brice, A Kimpton Hotel.
The square’s name is in honor of the first President of the United States. George Washington made an official visit to the city in 1791, one year after its dedication in his name. A plaque memorializes the Washington Fire Company No. 9 and is on display. This company of men provided fire protection to Washington for 28 years.
