Old Stone House information
Built in 1765, the capital’s oldest surviving building has been a tavern, brothel and boardinghouse (sometimes all at once) and today, despite sitting in the middle of M St, serves as a gardens and small museum on 18th-century American life. It was almost demolished in the 1950s, but a persistent (albeit false) rumor that L’Enfant used it as a workshop while designing DC saved it for posterity.
