This house is older than the District of Columbia—it was built in 1765, and Washington DC was not created until 1790. Today it is the city’s oldest structure that remains on its original foundation. In 1953 the National Park Service purchased the property and turned Old Stone House into a historic site; it opened to the public in 1960, and today you can visit to learn more about everyday life during the pre-revolutionary period. It is free to enter and open daily.
