Christ Church, Georgetown marked its bicentennial with a service. Then the choir led the congregation down 31st Street to Tudor Place for a garden party-barbecue.
Hearkening back two centuries on this estate, pork butt was on the menu and the Brews, Booze & Bites heritage food fest on our minds as we showed the 1794 Smoke House WUSA-9’s Andi Hauser (and told her about our unusual Elopement Package).
The Smoke House can be seen on any garden visit. There is no suggested donation for self-guided visits to the Garden; illustrated garden maps and smartphone audio tour information are available in the Visitor Center.
Join Curator Grant Quertermous for a “private” tour of Tudor Place, an episode of American Artifacts on C-Span’s American History TV. Learn historic highlights of the 1816 home while walking through its rooms, and see artifacts including the rare 1773 letter from George Washington, the bomb shelter, and an autographed picture of Woodrow Wilson.
