The Library of Congress wished everyone Happy New Year with a Takoma Park photo, the garden of the house named "Auld Lang Syne." Some lovely music? Here.
Pierre Perrolle's note on this house
'Itís 7315 Piney Branch, which we usually call the "Dorsey House", which was on the H&G Tour about three years ago. Itís first owner was J Owens Dorsey ... and I believe thatís his daughter, Virginia Lightfoot. The house was designed by Leon Dessez, who also did the Cady-Lee and the Naval Observatory/Admiralty House (VPís residence). If my memory serves me correctly, there is a plaque on the front door that reads "Auld Lang Syne." '
