Tudor Place Historic House & Garden
America's Story Lives Here! A National Historic Landmark on a 5 ½ acre estate in Georgetown, Tudor Place was built by a family George Washington loved. It was home, from 1805 to 1983, to six generations of his wife's descendants. A model of Federal-period architecture designed by architect William Thornton, it stood at the center of early Washington society.
The garden is open Thursday-Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Self-guided visits to the garden are free and you need to reserve a TIMED TICKET ENTRY. Tickets are for 2 hours of time; guests who desire more time can reserve multiple slots. You may arrive up to 15 minutes before your designated entry time. Onsite restrooms are available for ticket holders.
Bring a picnic, and please review the Temporary Health & Safety Guidelines before your visit.
Illustrated garden maps and smartphone audio tour information are available onsite after entry. Using the illustrated map, tour the garden's charming outdoor "rooms," see heirloom plantings and blooms under towering heritage trees, and visit the 1794 smoke house, grape arbor, gazebo and 1919 Pierce-Arrow motor car.
The historic house is currently closed for tours.
