Washington, D.C.'s Northwest neighborhood, Georgetown, is known for its architectural beauty with notable examples like Dumbarton Oaks and even the Old Stone House for those with a more traditional taste. For such a historic neighborhood, it's only fitting that it is host to what is believed to be the oldest house tour in the U.S.
On April 29, the 86th Georgetown House Tour will make its annual debut with hosts Jill and Scott Altman, residents of Georgetown and members of the St. John's Episcopal Church. Since 1931, the purpose of the tour has been to raise funds for the church for ministry and outreach. Alongside that, the tour is also meant to celebrate the neighborhood, itself, by allowing residents to open up their homes to the public.
The festivities will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets include admission to tea and entertainment. Ticket prices range from $40 to $55.
This year, there are eight houses in the tour. To see which homes will be included, check out the map below with each home listed geographically, from the most northwest to the most southeast.Read More
