The basics

Both the Old Stone House and its Colonial Revival Garden make a worthwhile stop in Georgetown. Park rangers are on hand to provide information and answer questions, and visitors can check out interpretive exhibits or explore the kitchen and other rooms, all furnished as they would have been back in the late 1700s. Many Georgetown walking tours, including architecture-focused tours and ghost tours, stop at the Old Stone House.
