Barcroft Walkabout

The Washington Post described Barcroft as “a photo album snapshot of an idyllic neighborhood from earlier times.” Dating back to the late 1800s, this community grew up around the Barcroft Mill and train station. Today it’s one of the friendliest neighborhoods around, with local residents playing an active role in preserving neighborhood camaraderie. The Walkabout allows exploration of parts of the Four Mile Run Trail.
