Tudor Place Historic House & Garden
A National Historic Landmark in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown Historic District, Tudor Place is a magnificent 1816 Federal-style house set on 5 1/2 acres adorned with heirloom plantings, heritage trees, fountains, arbors, a Japanese-style Tea House, and picturesque garden rooms. Owned by descendants of Martha Washington, it remained in a single family from 1805 to 1983. Tudor Place and its grounds evolved in that time from an agrarian farmstead to an ornamental garden oasis in the midst of a bustling urban neighborhood. Now operated for public enjoyment and education, the site embodies the best of museum quality stewardship for house, collection and landscape, pursuing practices including sustainable gardening and the accession of trees and plant materials into the museum collection.
