The Old Stone House
As the nation's capital, Washington, DC is known primarily as a city of grand memorials to national leaders and significant events. But aren't the lives of DC's "regular" citizens and "regular" buildings significant too? The oldest building in DC, Old Stone House commemorates the daily lives of Georgetown's early residents. The house serves as a great example of Revolutionary War-era architecture.
