The oldest house in DC. Not a lot to see, but worth it just to feel some of the atmosphere & see the garden. They apparently ploughed up a parking lot to lay out the 'English' garden. It's not very English, but a pleasant oasis...More

Strolled through Georgetown with my son and daughter and we all were surprised why this building stood the way it did in the middle of Georgetown. The oldest home in DC had character and cozy feel that almost took me back to late 1700s ;)

As many things in Washington… it is a nice tour back in time when you visit this house. It is located in Georgetown and doesn't take long to walk through.

Georgetown presents you with good street walk, nice old homes, brick buildings, nice eating places, nice views of the river side and The Old State House. Built in 1765, this is the oldest unchanged building in Washington DC. Inside you can easily be taken back...More

I really enjoyed the 30 minutes we spent here. Here's why: It's a piece of history. As the oldest surviving residence in DC, it has a place in history. The fact that so much of that is preserved, that they can share the history of...More
