William Penn House has always been a home away from home for me and my students. For 30 years, we’ve been spending the better part of a week at 515 East Capitol St. and have always appreciated the staff, the accommodations and the overall vibe of the house. With its location on Capitol Hill, we simply park our cars and walk to where we want to go each day. We are truly thankful for this hidden gem of a house in DC.
