Edgar and Beronica Morris Residence

The Morris House is an historic building located at 4001 Linnean Drive, Northwest, Washington, D.C., in the Forest Hills neighborhood, next to Rock Creek Park.

One of the elite residential landmarks of the suburban Forest Hills neighborhood, this 1939 mansion designed by the prominent architectural firm of Porter and Lockie was built as the home of Edgar Morris, an appliance company owner and civic leader. Its "Jacobethan" architecture and small estate settling drew upon medieval English tradition.
