Enjoyed the ~50 min tour guided by a great lady. Its "long" history has left a piece of everything in it. It's a hidden gem in Georgetown if you are someone interested in history houses. A walk around the garden is quite enjoyable as well....More

This is a mansion that Martha Washington's granddaughter and other descendants lived. There are beautiful grounds surrounding it and there are tours of the home. There are mementos and items from President George Washington and that era going forward.

Our excellent guide took us through the house. You get a good feel for how the descendants of Martha Washington lived and entertained. Many family heirlooms, including George Washington's own belongings, are set up in the rooms as they've been for centuries. Very nice garden...More
