About the Clerk's Quarters

The Clerk's Quarters provided a residence and office for George Washington’s secretary. After the presidential years, Albin Rawlins filled this position, helping Washington with his correspondence and serving as a business agent for enterprises such as the gristmill. Rawlins’s quarters were near the Mansion study, so his employer could quickly summon him.
