My wife & I greatly enjoyed our visit to the Stone House. This is the oldest structure in DC. It is a small stone house. Unfortunately when we visited the upstairs exhibit wasn't open yet. However, we spent about 20 minutes talking to Ranger Renee...More

I think this would be a great museum to check out, but it appears to not be open. All you can do is walk in the garden, and backyard. The gardens and yard are in serious need of attention. The weeds are overtaking the gardens...More

The only remaining property from the pre-revolution period. It’s evocative and makes you ponder what life would have been like there in the 1790s/1800s.

Visited today. Sign is posted closed for renovations until at least December 2018. Can see it from the street behind the chain link fence, but cannot go inside.

Entry is free and though small it is definitely worth visiting if you’re in Georgetown. The rooms are decorated in 1700’s style and it’s an interesting attraction to spend quarter of an hour visiting.

It's free and captures a sense of time long ago very well! Definitely worth popping in as you pass by on Georgetown's busy M Street.

Not much to see, but it's not bad if you happen to be in that area. Just step into the free house and pick up some knowledge about the history.
