The Old Stone House, built in 1765, is the oldest standing house in Washington. (This ignores the Gage House which was brought here after the fact.) It's been a private home, a boarding house, a tavern, a whorehouse, a craftsman studio, and a shop.
During the 1950's, it was saved from destruction because it was mistakenly thought to be the site of old Suter's Tavern (where George Washington and three new city commissioners met with local landowners in 1791 and convinced them to sell their land to the federal government to form the national capitol). In 1972, the Old Stone House was designated a historic site and placed under the care of the National Park Service.

Old Stone House:
The Old Stone House, one of the oldest known structures remaining in the nation's capital, is a simple 18th century dwelling built and inhabited by common people. Its beautiful English garden is a popular and tranquil oasis in the busy shopping district of Georgetown ( [show location on an interactive map] 38°54'19?N, 77°3'37?W). The house itself is a popular museum to everyday life of middle class colonial America.
The house was listed on the National Register on November 30, 1973.

1997 photos: Since 1984, I've lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
From 1981 to 2002, photos were taken using a Pentax ME Super camera.
From 1989 to 2002, I was doing all pictures as prints (instead of slides which I had grown up on).
In 1997, at the age of 40, my photo obsession began and I started taking thousands of photos per year.
In September, 2002, I switched to digital cameras and the number of photos exploded.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Trips this year: North Carolina (Dad), Florida (Mom), using a time share in Arkansas to visit Civil War sites in Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Civil War became my excuse to see places I'd never been to in my life and it was a great motivator for 20 years or so.
