Decatur House

Interesting
For almost a century and a half, this sedate brick town house on the northwest edge of Lafayette Square figured prominently in the social and political life of Washington. The first home built on the square and the last to remain in private ownership, it served as the residence of military heroes and renowned statesmen.
