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

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.
