This is one of the oldest buildings in Washington D.C. Very interesting history. Can you believe that 13 people lived in this home? Check out this old American homestead.

This is a great example of pre-Revolutionary War architecture, and it has a lovely garden in the back as well as a nice gift shop. Most people walk right past it but take a few minutes to go in and check out the furnished rooms. It's a nice stop on otherwise crazy M Street.

Cool to see such an old structure in the middle of Georgetown. My daughter and I enjoyed touring the grounds as well as the house and joked how the bedrooms are bigger than ours at home. Highly recommend if you are nearby.

The attraction can be found right on M St. NW and is open from 11am to 6pm daily for visitations. This stone house was built in 1765 when the area... More

It only takes a few minutes to explore but as the oldest house in DC it is worth a stop. It was saved from destruction because it was thought to have great historical significance. In 1955 the discovered that the historical significance was really another house long gone.

If walking around or shopping in Georgetown this small museum is very beautiful building. Oldest building in Washington still where it was built. Be sure to go up the narrow stairs to see the bedrooms. The garden is wonderful and an oasis in a busy commercial area.

Consider ducking into a quaint garden oasis in Georgetown if you need a break from the hustle, bustle, and heat of M Street. My teenage daughter and I had a lovely respite from shopping and walking (in inadequate shoes) by stepping through a cute little picket fence gate into a secret garden filled with spring flowering plants and trees. Although... More
