With the outbreak of war in 1861, Tudor Place fell on uncertain times. Learn in a special house tour about how owner Britannia Kennon moved into the old stable loft with her daughter and took in Union boarders to save the family home. After breaking for lunch, your guide will take you into historic Georgetown to see in person relics of the war's turmoil, including a Union hospital, the gravesite of Confederate spies, and a onetime community of African American freedmen and former slaves.
DEVELOPED TO COMMEMORATE THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CIVIL WAR.
