The best off the beaten path DC area attraction I have come across so far. It is inexpensive- I think the tour was 10 dollars. There are several exhibits on Washington and on Masonry inside. All are well curated and pretty interesting, especially to those who know little about masonry. The outlook platform on top of the building is my favorite view of DC. Unlike the Washington Monument, which only has a little window you can stick your head in, this is a full balcony with astonishing views.

Just visited this afternoon and had a very informative guided tour. So much history throughout the entire tavern. The only thing missing was a tasty draft beer to quench our thirst of the late afternoon heat here in Alexandria. The men's-only establishment was a favorite of Washington, Adams, Jefferson and others. Not sure about communal beds upstairs, but that was typical of the early 19th century. The lovely ball room on the top floor is well preserved and still used today special.

This is a hidden gem amongst the numerous historical landmarks in the area. Dianne did a fantastic job guiding our small group throughout the home, with a great sense of interesting facts beyond just the exact timeline of the home and its residents' history. I'm a local who is enthusiastic about the area's history and I thought this was outstanding.
