Washington , DC
Americas story lives here! Before there was Washington, there was Georgetown, then and now, a center for society and politics. In 1805, on 8½ acres purchased with a bequest from George Washington, Martha Washingtons granddaughter and her husband envisioned the estate that would become Tudor Place Historic House & Garden, home to six generations of their descendants and now an extraordinary museum. On hourly guided tours, see the Thornton-designed Neoclassical house and collection including decorative arts, domestic objects, and rare items from Washingtons Mount Vernon; on self-guided garden tours, enjoy gravel paths and expansive lawns, the woodsy Dell, and numerous garden rooms that reflect the lands evolution from urban farmstead to the recreational oasis it is today.
Open February through December:
Tuesday 10 a.m.
