about this item

An extensively researched and illustrated history of Tudor Place, a National Historic Landmark on 5.5-acres in Georgetown. The property was owned for 176 years by one prominent family (the Peters, until 1995), who were related to Martha Washington, and as such the building reflects the social, political, and economic history of America from its founding into the 20th century. Moreover, the extensive collections at Tudor Place—some 15,000 pieces in total—as well as its archive and extraordinary architecture combine to showcase the evolution of the wider United States. The new volume will establish the significance of Tudor Place, architecturally, historically, and artistically, make the house and the property better known and accessible to a wider audience.
