WARNING: If, when you read this review, the big picture heading this Tripadvisor entry is still of a stone building with a tower and a bright red door, that is *not* the Old Stone House (though it may be *some* old stone house somewhere, but more likely a church). See the accompanying photos of the real thing that I took... More

My older children and I visited this house on our recent trip to DC. It is a sweet slice-of-life from colonial times. It will just take a 1/2 hour or so (including some time the gift shop) and is a simple example of how people lived in the 1760's.

This small house in Georgetown is the oldest standing building in the District. A private tour bus operator (one of the hop-on hop-off sorts) pointed it out to riders while stopped at a traffic light nearby. What they failed to mention is that this is operated by the National Park Service. It is a treasure in the middle of the... More

We came upon this house while walking around the shopping area. There is a cute garden in the back of the house. It's nice the house was preserved over time.

It was not what I was expecting. I would not have noticed it if it was not the sign, but it was not bad and the garden behind it is cute.

I thought it was really cute. No guided tour which I like. They have signs by all the rooms to let you know what they were used for. Also to get there we had to walk through Georgetown and it's a very nice area with a lot of different shops.

needs the proper photo, that is NOT a photo of the old stone house in Georgetown. This is a delightful place to visit and actually only exists because of a case of mistaken identity; it was thought to be the Seuter House where George Washington visited and was saved from demolition for this reason. It wasn't the home that Washington... More

A nice spot for a quick stop in downtown Georgetown to see this old residence that predates the Revolutionary war. Very well furnished and maintained to accurately portray the time.
