Hidden in Georgetown’s Historical District, the Tudor Place was originally built in 1816 by George and Martha Washington’s granddaughter, Martha Custis Peter. This beautiful estate was home to the next six generations of her descendents over the course of 180 years.
Currently, it is open to the public and exhibits more than 8000 pieces of silver, ceramics, jewelry, paintings, manuscripts, photographs, and furniture dated from 1750-1983. The collection brings to life the cultural and social history of over 200 years of the family and the city.
For those interested in a deeper understanding of the Garden’s history, there are free docent led tours Tuesday through Saturday!
