A model of Federal-period architecture in the nation’s capital and a center of early Washington society, Tudor Place was home to six generations of Martha Washington’s descendants from 1805-1983.  Martha Custis Peter, a granddaughter of Martha Washington, and her husband, Thomas Peter, son of Georgetown’s first mayor, originally purchased 8 ½ acres of farmland on Georgetown Heights. Dr. William Thornton, architect of the first U.S. Capitol and family friend, designed the grand neoclassical house, which was completed in 1816.
