DUMBARTON HOUSE FEATURED OBJECTBuilt during the tumultuous presidencies of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the house has been restored to show it as it might have appeared during the time of its first resident, Joseph Nourse, who served as Register of the U.S. Treasury for the first six Presidents of the United States. The museum presents an unusual opportunity to catch a glimpse of what life was like in Washington during the early days of the Republic.
Today, Dumbarton House offers public and school tours, special exhibitions, lectures and concerts, children's days, and holiday open houses relating to the Federal period. Its beautiful Belle Vue Room and outdoor gardens are available for private and corporate rentals.
