    This is interesting. The Nourse House is perhaps better known as “The Highlands,” and as the longtime residence of Admiral Cary Grayson, MD, the Navy physician who attended Woodrow Wilson during his long convalescence following a stroke in 1919. His son, a distinguished Washington publisher, died a few years ago.
