The Hiram W. Johnson House, also known as Mountjoy Bayly House, Chaplains Memorial Building or Parkington, is an historic house, located at 122 Maryland Avenue, Northeast, Washington, D.C., in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

History[edit]

It was constructed in 1822, a combination of Federal and Second Empire architecture. It was the residence of the second Sergeant at Arms of the Senate, General Mountjoy Bayly. From 1929 until 1947, it was the residence of Senator Hiram Johnson, a former governor of California and a founder of the Progressive Party.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976,[2][3] and contributing property to the Capitol Hill Historic District.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) owned the building. It was leased to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.[4]
