Hillwood is truly unique and very special. I happen to work at Marjorie Merriweather Post's first DC home, now an independent school in the Cleveland Park neighborhood, so am surrounded by reminders of her historic past. Hillwood is gorgeous, with many gardens (my favorite is the terraced Japanese garden), special exhibits (the current one of her Cartier jewels is sumptuous), a wonderful gift shop and offers a glimpse into the everyday life of an heiress who lived a very full life. Do not miss Hillwood if you enjoy seeing how the other half lived.
