Photo Friday: Old Enders Farmhouse

Old Enders Farmhouse

Built in the late 1800s, the house at 4330 Yuma Street, NW originally belonged to Engelbert Enders, a dairyman who hailed from Baden, Germany.  Enders’ dairy farm was adjacent to the Dunblane estate – today the American University Tenley Campus – and parts remained operational into the 1920s.  The residence is one of the oldest homes still standing in Tenleytown today.
