|Description:||Built during the tumultuous presidencies of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the house has been restored to show it as it might have appeared during the time of its first resident, Joseph Nourse, who served as Register of the U.S. Treasury for the first six Presidents of the United States. The museum presents an unusual opportunity to catch a glimpse of what life was like in Washington during the early days of the Republic.
A visit to Dumbarton House offers guests a distinctive look at Federal period architecture, furniture, and decorative arts, as well as life in Georgetown, during our nation's earliest days. Docent-led tours begin with a short video describing the history of the house and its varied owners. Guests can view all seven museum rooms of the house, as well as the temporary exhibit gallery.
