The Old Stone House

As the nation's capital, Washington, DC is known primarily as a city of grand memorials to national leaders and significant events. But aren't the lives of DC's "regular" citizens and "regular" buildings significant too? The oldest building in DC, Old Stone House commemorates the daily lives of Georgetown's early residents. The house serves as a great example of Revolutionary War-era architecture.

View of Garden at the Old Stone House

The garden area of the Old Stone House is not reminiscent of a colonial garden but rather an English-style garden. A colonial garden would have been more practical with herbs, vegetables and small livestock.
