The land at Tudor Place was purchased in 1805 by Martha Washington's granddaughter, Martha Custis Peter, and her husband, Thomas Peter, with an inheritance left to them by famed surveyor and occasional U.S. President George Washington. Over the ensuing 179 years, the stunning American Neoclassical house became home to six generations and hundreds of historical artifacts, including more than 100 objects, letters, and DVDs once belonging to George and Martha Washington. In 1988, the house, as well as its impressive 5.5-acre garden, was opened to the public as a historic site, allowing visitors to tour its immaculate greenery and marvel at its original Federal period design elements, such as Martha Peter's striking Boxwood Ellipse and grand Flower Knot.
With an individual membership to Tudor Place, you'll receive an annual pass to Tudor Place Historic House and Garden, as well as a one-year subscription to Tudor Place Times, a 10% discount on items in the Museum Shop, and reduced admission to education programs for adults and children. Individual membership also includes invitations to select members-only lectures and events. Family memberships garner the same privileges as individual memberships, with an additional 20% discount on themed birthday parties and four complimentary admissions to either the Holiday Open House or the Halloween Spooktacular. Fulfill your fantasies of having been a homeowner during the 1800s with a membership to Tudor Place.

- Stepping into Tudor Place feels like a trip back in time. Manicured gardens overflowing with flowers give way to a neoclassical mansion that served as the home of one of D.C.'s most prominent families until the 1980s. – Continental magazine
- Beyond the home’s gracious neo-Classical architecture, Tudor Place’s considerable charm lies in the fact that it is not frozen in any one decade, but reveals the rich patina of history. – Andrew Ferren, New York Times
