Tudor PlaceIn 1816, your view from this sweeping lawn included the bustling tobacco port of Georgetown, the Potomac River, and, to the east, the growing city of Washington DC. Then a hay field, sheep and cows grazed on the law. By the beginning of the 1900s the view was starkly different with a series of row houses built along the surrounding streets. For 200 years the sloping lawn has maintained its pastoral, naturalistic elements in harmony with the architecture of the house.
