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.

Hourly guided tours feature family stories and the histories of the servants and enslaved workers who served. Explore the spaces where people lived, worked and entertained, from the agricultural to the digital age. The estate's collections include more than 18,000 decorative arts items, archival, historic and archaeological artifacts, and a Washington Collection larger than any outside Mount Vernon. 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.

Tudor Place is in Georgetown's leafy and charming Book Hill district near an abundance of shops, cafes and galleries. Easily reached by car, metro, bus, and on foot, Tudor Place is currently closed through July 31 and is usually open February-December, Tuesday-Saturday 10-4, Sunday 12-4, with tours running hourly on the hour. The final tour starts at 3 p.m.
