Hi. It is unfortunate that all 3 previous reviews are not about The Dumbarton House at all, but it's lovely, historic neighbor, Dumbarton Oaks, www.doaks.org. Dumbarton House is a ca. 1800 Federal Period house museum on 1.2 acres, but it is not the house at Dumbarton Oaks, which is the more prominent site because of its gorgeous 20+ acres of gardens, and affiliation with Harvard Univ. The Oaks ca. 1800 house is an administration building not a museum; the Oaks' museum is a contemporary structure housing Byzantine & Pre-Columbian Art. The two historic houses are not related except via their presence in Georgetown as ca. 1800 homes!
