I am biased on this as it is owned by the organization I was there with. We had our board meeting there. This was my first visit to the house and I was impressed. They are doing a marvelous job restoring the house. Loved the wallpaper story. They also have a very special display right now called Metamo'rphosis I. Five artists have made metalworks based on items from the house collection. They are beautiful. They will be auctioned off later to help support the house.

A little off the beaten path. Very nice but not over the top guided tour. A great neighborhood to explore and a lovely house to tour.

An interesting historical site, but not much more.

If you want to catch a glimpse of Georgetown during its first years as a capital city, you can't miss this house. Beutifully furnished with Federal period decorative arts, this is a great stop on your tour of Georgetown!
