This tiny Old Stone House is semi-hidden on one of the busiest streets (M Street) in old Georgetown. I have met a number of public citizen volunteers who maintain the small but lovely flower garden. Some reenactor volunteers show up from time to time in Colonial costumes to work spinning wheels or to card threads to be used in spinning... More

While enjoying our second walk through Georgetown, we stopped to check out the Old Stone House on M Street. It's a free visit through a small, quaint, structure with a delightful history dating from 1765! I'm so glad we stopped in!

The house is rather interesting, but is a bit blocked in the busiest street of Georgetown. The display of how a XVIII century family lived is quite interesting, but the small size of the house suggests that some restriction on the amount of people walking up should be placed.

This little gem is tucked right in the middle of all the fabulous shops of Georgetown. My husband and I love this kind of history and really enjoyed the self-guided tour. Definitely worth stopping in to get back to reality!

My Daughter and I stumbled across this while shopping in Georgetown. It's free and absolutely gorgeous! We went in as it caught our eye from across the street as it's so beautiful. Going up through the 3 floors is like stepping back in time. A surprising Must See as far as I'm concerned!

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
