Springtime in the D-M-V is so beautiful. Let’s get outside and play!
The DC area also boasts beautiful historic homes open for tours. This month’s feature is Tudor Place Historic House and Garden. One of America’s first National Historic Landmarks, it was built by a granddaughter of Martha Washington and a son of Robert Peter, a prominent Scottish-born merchant, and landowner and Georgetown’s first mayor. On 5½ acres, Tudor Place remains one of America’s last intact urban estates from the Federal Period. Its open lawns and garden rooms are a delight and a useful historical record of land use over time.
