The oldest house in DC -- right in the middle of Georgetown's shopping district on M street. Take 10-20 minutes for a quick look around the 1700's furnished rooms and learn some DC history. Nice little gift shop too. Very knowledge staff can answer historical and local tourism questions.

We didn't get to go inside the house. Only enjoyed the beauty of it from the outside. The backyard garden was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. It was a nice spot to stop and rest after a long walk on Georgetown's busy streets.

We found this little place while wandering through Georgetown. We were so happy we did! It was very interesting and the gardens out back are lovely. Worth a quick stop!

This is a nice little museum in Georgetown. It has a small ground that is maintained, but it is mainly a building that is the longest standing in DC from pre-revolutionary times. It was interesting to see the rooms and artifacts. There's a little gift shop as soon as you enter and the staff was really nice. Free.

Due to the timing of our approach, the little building was already closed which left us to merely wander the backyard area (free and easy to enter). If it gives you any idea, as soon as we stepped onto the path, we passed a young couple obviously taking engagement photos—this place is that sort of pretty. NOT THAT BIG OR... More

I probably wouldn't go out of my to come to this area JUST for the Stone House, but if you're in Georgetown anyway, it's worth a 10-15 minute segway to walk through this small old colonial stone house. It's free and it's right on the main street "M" where all the cool shopping and restaurants are located. Charming gift store... More

Oldest house in DC....built in 1765. Located right in the heart of Georgetown retail area. How cool is that. I love the fact that someone had the foresight to preserve it! Rangers lead the Tours here. Demo of crafts & cooking of that era. Not open every day of the week Great Gift Shop.

I love this little house. You can really get a feel of how the colonists here lives in the 17th and 18th centuries. I highly recommend a visit. It's in the heart of Georgetown, and it is not to be missed!

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
