Georgetown Homes of the Famous and Infamous
Walking Tour - Parts can be included in Highlights of Washington Tours
Duration: 2 hours
A charming neighborhood that flourished as a sophisticated community long before the founding of Washington, D.C.
- Starting Point: Base of steps leading up to Georgetown Library on R St. NW (corner of Wisconsin Ave. NW).
- Walk narrow streets fronting the residences of authors Bob Woodward, Herman Wouk, Katherine Anne Porter and Sinclair Lewis.
- Stand before the elegant homes of President-elect John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Abraham Lincoln’s oldest son, Robert Todd Lincoln.
- See the stylish townhomes of Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, John Foster Dulles, Christian Herter and Dean Acheson.
- See where Dolley Madison stayed after fleeing the White House, close by the homes of Nuremberg War Crimes Judge Francis Biddle, convicted perjurer and suspected traitor Alger Hiss, and Watergate felon Attorney General John Mitchell.
- And much more... including the love nest of a middle-aged baron and his teenage wife dubbed Beauty and The Beast, and a wartime spy, hailed by British intelligence as “the greatest unsung heroine of World War 11."
