Battery Kemble Park

Hotels near Battery Kemble Park, Washington D.C., United States .

Battery Kemble Park, located in Northwestern Washington, D.C. is one of the Civil War Defenses of Washington, or Fort Circle, National Park Service Parks. This historically significant locale was a defense point for the Union Army during the Civil War. Modern-day Nebraska Avenue was the site of Battery Kemble, set along an elevation and featuring a battery with two 100 pound Parrott rifles. Although then called Ridge Road, the rifles were equipped to fire from Nebraska Avenue to at least Chain Bridge, Virginia across the Potomac River. Battery Kemble was built in 1861 and received its name after former West Point Foundry superintendent, Gouveneur Kemble of Cold Springs, New York. The many Civil War fortifications, whose remnants remain in the area around urban Washington, D.C., stand as historical reminders for visitors and locals alike, while providing the area with contrasting tranquil green park space.

Today, Battery Kemble Park is a popular place to go for a stroll along the Park trails, and where many local pet-owners head with their dogs. Nearby landmarked historical sites include the Abner Cloud House, Chain Bridge, the Mouth of Pimmit Run, the Clay and Randolph Duel, Fort Ethan Allen, and Fort Marcy. All National Park Service Civil War Defenses of Washington sites are open daily from dawn to dusk with the exception of Christmas and New Years Days. Admission to all associated Parks is free of charge.

Nearby hotels include the Courtyard by Marriott Chevy Chas, the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, the Residence Inn Bethesda Downtown and the Embassy Suites Chevy Chase Pavilion.
