Flight of the Madisons: Dolley at Salona

Salona or "Smoot's House" after the Smoot family that owned the house during the Civil War when this photograph was taken.

Salona is a Federal-style farmhouse built c. 1800 and purchased in 1812 by Rev. William Maffitt. Dolley Madison briefly stopped through Salona en route to Wiley's Tavern. Today it is a privately-owned home in McLean, Virginia.
