Meridian Hill Park, a twelve-acre neoclassical park reminiscent of an Italian villa garden, is a National Park Service property, one-and-a-half miles due north of the White House. Prior to becoming a national park, the park was home to Columbian College, a precursor to George Washington University; a Civil War encampment; a seminary; the site of nature poet Joaquin Miller’s cabin; and part of a senator’s estate called Meridian Hill.
