About your host

I'm a grad student at Georgetown University and an historian of Colonial and Revolutionary Maryland and the DC area. I know the history of many of the most iconic buildings and sights in Georgetown and can tailor tours to the guest's interests, whether that's architecture, history, Georgetown University, or simply seeing the sights and getting some fresh air.

What we’ll do

We will meet at the heart of Georgetown where it was founded, walk a length of the C&O Canal, and see the great homes where politicians like John C. Calhoun, First Ladies like Dolly Madison and Jackie Onassis, and other historical figured lived, and end at Georgetown University's iconic Healy Hall.

What else you should know

Our tour will cover some distance by foot, some of which may be uphill. We can tailor routes to suit you, but please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water to keep hydrated.

Where you'll be

The tour will explore the historic core of the Georgetown neighborhood from the sidewalk, pointing out architecture, gardens, and hidden pieces of history the host has uncovered about individual sites and the people who lived there.
