If you live in Montgomery County’s Fort Washington, you are the rare American who can actually say “George Washington slept here.” The founding father made his home at Emlen House between the Battle of Germantown and the march to the Valley Forge encampment. Today, even the real estate outside of the Revolutionary hot spots is valuable. The median sales price in the last 12 months comes to $437,500—a one percent dip from this time last year.
