America’s Story Lives Here
A National Historic Landmark, Tudor Place Historic House & Garden features two centuries of history, landscape, and family life and a collection including the largest set of Washington items on public display outside Mount Vernon. The estate was built in 1816 by an early Washington "power couple," Martha Washington's granddaughter Martha Custis Peter and her husband, Thomas Peter, son of a prominent Scots-born landowner. Their estate on 5-1/2 (originally 8-1/2) acres, with its notable design and famed Temple Portico, was home to six generations of their descendants and the workers, free and enslaved, who served them. In 1988, it opened to the public as a museum, and today offers hourly guided house tours Tuesdays through Sundays, February-December. Hear the stories. Walk among the rooms and artifacts.
