House shown by guided tour, offered hourly; ticket includes garden access. A model of Federal-period architecture in the nation’s capital and a center of early Washington society, Tudor Place was home from 1805 to 1983 to six generations of Martha Washington's descendants. Their stories and those of the servants and enslaved workers who served them animate the site, with collections including more than 15,000 decorative arts items, archival, historic and archaeological artifacts, and a Washington Collection larger than any outside Mount Vernon. On 5½ lushly landscaped acres in Georgetown, this urban estate hosted illustrious figures including the Marquis de Lafayette, General Robert E. Lee, President Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun, and Daniel Webster, as well as generations of artists, writers, soldiers, politicians and others.
