Overview

This fine, dignified Georgian mansion, built in the 1800s, was long a centerpiece of Georgetown society. Local lore has it that Dolley Madison watched the White House burn during the War of 1812 from this hilltop home. It is now a showplace of graceful early 19th Century architecture, elegant period furnishings and lovely gardens. The mansion is the headquarters of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America. The house is now a museum dedicated to the Federal Period.
