Calling Bannockburn Home

According to some longtime residents, Bannockburn is less a place than it is state of mind. Community engagement is an integral part of Bannockburn's identity, and residents actively participate in various events and gatherings throughout the year. The Bannockburn Citizens Association plays a vital role in organizing community events, including seasonal celebrations, block parties, and social gatherings, fostering a strong sense of camaraderie and neighborly bonds. The neighborhood is situated near several popular parks and as well as the Potomac River and C & O Toepath, providing ample opportunities for outdoor activities and leisure. The nearby Bannockburn Swim Club is a favorite spot for families during the summer months, offering swimming pools, tennis courts, and recreational amenities. Bannockburn Green Park and Merrimack Park are also nearby, providing residents with additional green spaces and playgrounds for children to enjoy.

 

History

Bannockburn's history as a neighborhood dates back to the 1940's when an organization called the Group Housing Cooperative bought the 124 acre Bannockburn Golf Course, which had fallen on hard time thanks to the Great Depression, with an eye towards establishing a cooperative housing community. While this vision never materialized, the spirit of a civically engaged community lives on in the neighborhood as does the original clubhouse built for the golf course in 1912 which is now a community center.

 

Architecture

The original home styles in the neighborhood were mostly ramblers and split levels- styles popular in the 1940's and 1950's. Thanks to the large lots, many of these homes lent themselves to being torn down and rebuilt with larger, more contemporary styles. Today, the neighborhood's architecture varies greatly from estate sized colonials to mid century modern gems sited on the rolling hills that were once the Bannockburn Golf Course.
