This upcoming Thursday will be your opportunity to own a piece of local history. Dupont Bed & Breakfast Swann House, which has been on the market for some time will finally hit the auction block. The gorgeous fourteen bedroom inn (which contributes to the Dupont Circle Historic District) started out asking $7 million last April, was most recently listed at $3.85 million, but has stubbornly refused to sell. For those enterprising innkeepers who might have balked at the idea of heading to Alexandria, most of the internet feedback indicates that locals hope this place remains an inn.
