Several times a week, I drive by this brick and sandstone fort sits on the highest elevation in Washington. Dating back to 1861, Fort Reno was one of a circle of forts built around the city to defend Washington from the Confederate Army. Whenever there is a big fireworks display scheduled downtown (like maybe for President Obama's second inaugural?) many residents of Tenleytown head for this hill instead of going downtown to fight the crowds. And in the summertime, Fort Reno is a popular venue for local musicians to give free concerts.
