Washington D.C. is home to some of America’s most unforgettable landmarks, and Georgetown is no exception. The neighborhood’s historic structures and cemeteries tell the story of the District — and America — through their ornate architectural details, rich back stories, and ongoing contributions to the fiber of the city and the country.
Tudor Place Historic House and Garden
Known as “The Estate of the Nation,” Tudor Place sits high atop a hill, overlooking Georgetown and the Potomac River. The house — which is accessible via tours and tea sessions — and the gardens are carefully preserved to maintain their original early 19th-century character.
A standout among standouts, Healy Hall is Georgetown’s most acclaimed piece of architecture. This National Historic Landmark was constructed in 1882 and still stands as a stunning example of Romanesque architecture at its most grand. The massive building is one of the centerpieces of the Georgetown University campus, holding academic and administrative offices.
The Old Stone House
The oldest house in Washington D.C. sits right in the heart of Georgetown. Maintained and administered by the National Park Service, this classic 1765 structure predates Georgetown University, the Graham Georgetown, and even the United States of America itself.
Oak Hill Cemetery
This historic 22-acre cemetery is home to the graves of many of the famous politicians, diplomats, and military figures that made D.C. the cosmopolitan city that it is today. D.C. denizens and visitors alike walk the hallowed rows, searching for the headstones of eight U.S. senators, two diplomats, two judges, and others.
Georgetown Waterfront Park
Running, biking, and relaxing are the three most popular pastimes in this expansive and scenic riverfront park. Stretching along the banks of the Potomac, this stretch of greenery provides a 10-acre escape from the bustle of the city, just steps from Georgetown’s shops and restaurants.
The Mansion on O street
