Astronaut John Glenn Used To Live On Harrison Street

Before John Glenn made history on the moon he lived in a rambler in Arlington on Harrison Street. The Arlington Library website has more on his family's time in NoVa plus the historical anecdote that Glenn and his wife went to celebrate his selection for the moon mission (and their anniversary) at Evans Farm Inn in McLean. Newcomers to the area can determine where that was by looking for the crowded, densely packed townhouses along Route 123.
