Tucked in between stores and restaurants in Georgetown, this historic house is fun to tour. Make sure you check out the gardens. The gift shop is fun & funky. I bought some owl cards. One thing I have to say - the woman working here was soooooo nice and knowledgeable. Thanks to all the D.C. Park Service employees/volunteers. You guys... More

As many things in Washington… it is a nice tour back in time when you visit this house. It is located in Georgetown and doesn't take long to walk through.

Georgetown presents you with good street walk, nice old homes, brick buildings, nice eating places, nice views of the river side and The Old State House. Built in 1765, this is the oldest unchanged building in Washington DC. Inside you can easily be taken back to the old era and one does think that outside all will be like the... More

I really enjoyed the 30 minutes we spent here. Here's why: It's a piece of history. As the oldest surviving residence in DC, it has a place in history. The fact that so much of that is preserved, that they can share the history of its residents via a museum, is pretty cool. It's quick. Since it's not big, and... More

If you're in the area of Georgetown, don't miss this little piece if history. It's not big but it's interesting. You enter through a gift shop to the museum. You get to see the kitchen area and also 2nd and 3rd floor.

We came across the Old Stone House as we were walking through Georgetown. It was open and free to enter so we popped in. This is the oldest building in Washington DC. It was obviously the home of a prosperous family and there were interesting things to see on all three floors. There were even a few toys to play... More

The old stone house is interesting as the oldest building in Washington, D.C. It's right in the middle of the shopping district on M Street. The tour is a free self-guided tour of three floors. The ground floor has the kitchen and gift shop. The second floor has the dining room and main bedroom, and the third floor has the... More

This old house is situated in a crowded place; in the middle of Georgetown shopping areas. It is almost free, though a room requires a fee of $5. There is a garden of some rare trees and plants also. It takes 30 minutes to see all.

According to the Ranger the house was saved as it was incorrectly titled as having been George Washington's Head quarters. I was disappointed with Georgetown but it was partially redeemed by this lovely little stone cottage and the helpful warden. The rooms are furnished and accessorised. Free to visit. Little garden at the back.
