From one historic house museum to another! Join Tudor Place Historic House & Garden, home to six generations of the Peter family and located in Washington, DC, for a virtual presentation highlighting the history of the family, home, and enslaved and free people who lived and worked there from 1805 until 1983. The estate’s first owners were Martha Custis Peter and Thomas Peter. Martha Custis was born at Mount Vernon, the granddaughter of Martha Washington and step-granddaughter of George Washington. Tudor Place has close ties to the legacy of America’s first First Family and is the only property in the District of Columbia connected to George and Martha Washington. This presentation will have a strong focus on Britannia, the second owner of the home during the period of the Civil War. Learn about family history, rooms in the historic house and objects in the collection. Stories come to life through this engaging and interactive conversation on Facebook live followed by a Q&A with Collections Manager, Bryn Cooley, and Education Coordinator, Katie McCarthy.
