Historic Georgetown Architecture Tour



Hear the rags to riches story of DC’s oldest neighborhood

Sundays, Jul 14, 2024 - Jul 12, 2026. 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Established fifty years before Washington DC, Georgetown got its start as a gritty port city on the banks of the Potomac River. Despite modest beginnings, Georgetown eventually came to have the most expensive and desirable property in the District. Home to palatial mansions, elegant cemeteries, stately churches, and a world-class University, explore the highlights and secrets of DC’s most exclusive neighborhood and learn the rags to riches tale with DC Design Tours. We'll visit the unassuming oldest building in the city, peak into back alleys, gaze down a dramatic set of famous stairs, cross the old C&O Canal, and finish up on the banks of the Potomac River at the gorgeous Georgetown Waterfront. Sights and stops include:



  • Chesapeake & Ohio Canal

  • Old Stone House

  • Laird-Dunlop House

  • Newton D. Baker House

  • Miss Lydia's English Seminary School for Girls

  • Christ Episcopal Church

  • Yellow Tavern
