History of Suburban Hospital

After World War I, four military officers formed a real estate development company. Major H.C. Maddux assumed the presidency of Maddux, Marshall, Moss & Mallory. From their company headquarters located at the National Capital Building (923 15th Street), they controlled and managed five of Washington’s most prominent hotels as well as Washington Gardens, Garrett Park, a group of homes in Luzon Heights, and a community of small farms near Waldorf.
