Why not have a look - it is free

The oldest house in Washington with a great history and some myths as well. It doesn't take long to do the self guided tour and is well worth spending 10 minutes in.

Built in 1765, this year marks the 250th birthday of Washington DC's oldest surviving house. Under the 'care' of the National Parks Services, the house and its small garden outside look kept in good nick. Because it's really quite small, one could easily walk past the house on the street without realising its significance. But it's good for a very... More

As we struggled along Georgetown's busy M Street on a pleasant Saturday afternoon, we almost missed this gem : a neatly restored two-story cottage which apparently pre-dates the American Revolution, and is now managed by the National Park Service. Built in 1765 - making it Washington's oldest building - it seems to have had a chequered history since then, allegedly... More

There's not an awful lot to see but what there is is interesting and the lovely garden at the back provides a pleasant place to rest for a while. Certainly go if you are in the area.

This is a cute little home that's the oldest property still standing in Washington DC. It's been turned into a museum with free admission so it's worth a stop if you're in the Georgetown area and have a few minutes to spare. Just keep your expectations low because there isn't a lot of info or much to see. It has... More

The house is nice although sometimes when we come it seems to be closed. The garden in the back is a gem. You can rest and maybe eat a treat bought from nearby dessert shops. Worth a stop if you're in Georgetown.

It was not yet opened when I passed by this attraction on September 26, 2015 as I walked along M Street. I went back after visiting other attractions of Georgetown. It opens at 11: 00 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday. (Please see related picture). Entrance is FREE. There is a small Gift Shop and a... More

Free admission. Park service runs it. Old stone house. Narrow steep steps. Small rooms with little furnishings. No public restroom. An interesting 10 minute interlude away from bustling m street to see how middle class lived 200 years ago.
