The Old Stone House is the oldest original residence on it's original foundation in the District of Columbia. It doubled as both residence and business for most of its history. Today, the house doubles as museum and store. Run in partnership with our cooperating association--America's National Park Stores--staff continues to use the space in a traditional manner as well as being able to tell the story of life in early Maryland and the District of Columbia.
