Arlington House, Tudor Place, and the American Civil War presented by Mark Maloy, National Park Service

Arlington House sits on a bluff overlooking the nation’s capital. Similar to Tudor Place, Arlington was the home of a step-grandchild of George Washington. George Washington Parke Custis, the younger brother of Martha Parke Custis Peter, built Arlington as a memorial to George Washington, in addition to being a residence. The Custises at Arlington were very close to their cousins at Tudor Place. The homes were linked by familial ties and by their mutual guardianship of the Washington family legacy. Both became repositories of some of the most treasured heirlooms that once belonged to George and Martha Washington.
