Tudor Place Historic House & Garden

America's Story Lives Here! Celebrating its Bicentennial in 2016, this National Historic Landmark in Georgetown belonged to six generations of one family, descendants of Martha Washington. Architect William Thornton designed the house, an icon of Federal-era style in a 5½-acre garden landscape.
"You can practically hear the swish of skirts on the stairs!" a visitor said on TripAdvisor. On hourly tours, explore the spaces where six generations lived, entertained, and labored from the agricultural to the digital age. See art, furnishings, household items, and collections, including more than 200 George and Martha Washington artifacts, accumulated over two centuries, and learn the personal and public stories that illuminate two centuries of American arts, labor, politics, and technology. Informed docents lead every one-hour tour. In the landscaped garden, stroll among outdoor "rooms" with an illustrated map and enjoy heirloom plantings and copious blooms under towering heritage trees.
Tudor Place is in Georgetown's leafy and charming Book Hill district near an abundance of shops, cafes, and galleries, and easily reached by car, metro and bus, and walking. Open Tuesday through Sunday with tours running hourly on the hour (final tour at 3 p.m.).
