The Old Stone House Collection

Old Stone House
The Old Stone House, ca. 1878

In the midst of Washington, D.C., a city of grand memorials to national leaders and significant events, stands an unassuming building commemorating the daily lives of ordinary Americans who made this city, and this nation, unique. The Old Stone House, one of the oldest known structures remaining in the nation's capital, is a simple 18th century dwelling built and inhabited by common people.

Its beautiful English garden is a popular and restive oasis in the busy shopping district of Georgetown. The house itself is a popular museum to everyday life of middle class colonial America.
