Langley Fork Historic District

-A A +A
Intersection of Georgetown Pk. (VA 193) and Chain Bridge Rd. (VA 123), Langley

The small historic district around Langley Fork retains some of the character of late nineteenth-century northern Virginia. It includes the Langley Ordinary (c. 1850), a two-story wooden I-house; the Langley Toll House (c. 1870), modest and much altered; Gunnels Chapel (c. 1870), a small wooden African American chapel; the Langley Friends Meeting House (1893), originally built for a Methodist congregation, wooden with decorative bargeboards and a bell tower; and Hickory Hill (c. 1868, 1931, 1964), a substantially remodeled house, actually part of an estate, and for a time the residence of Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
