The following is a press release from Tudor Place Historic House & Garden:
Washington, DC — Tudor Place Historic House & Garden opens Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4:00 p.m. Beginning Tuesday, February 7 guided tours of the historic house and self-guided garden visits are available. Tours of the house start at the hour, with the last tour at 3 p.m. Advance registration is encouraged; visit www.tudorplace.org.
After a disrupted schedule over the past three years, Tudor Place reopens with its pre-pandemic schedule of docent-led tours of the historic house alongside the launch of a 3D virtual tour accessible on the website (https://tudorplace.org/virtual-tour/). The 3D virtual tour offers a way to discover rooms and objects in the historic house on the first floor, second-floor bedrooms and hallway where George Washington’s chest-on-chest bureau stands, all from the comforts of home. “We are excited to again welcome visitors six days a week for guided tours that share the stories of everyone at this National Historic Landmark,” said Executive Director Mark Hudson.
Tudor Place is committed to sharing stories that represent all faces and facets of this National Historic Landmark – knowing the lifestyle and stature of the Peter family was made possible by the labor of generations of enslaved individuals and immigrant domestic workers. A model of Federal-period architecture in the nation’s capital, Tudor Place cares for thousands of historic objects, including the largest Washington Collection outside of Mount Vernon. The historic house is surrounded by 5 ½ acres of garden and rolling landscapes in the historic Georgetown neighborhood.
ABOUT TUDOR PLACE: Tudor Place preserves the stories of six generations of descendants of Martha Washington, and the enslaved and free people who lived and worked here for nearly two centuries. By examining their legacy, we challenge ourselves and our visitors to celebrate the triumphs and to confront the complexities of the past. www.tudorplace.org.
