Significance: An unusual, perhaps unique, execution of late Federal period architecture, designed by William Thornton, Tudor Place also possesses outstanding historical significance for its association with prominent nineteenth-century personages and its role s the center of nineteenth-century Georgetown social life, and its extensive archives documenting early two hundred years of upper class lifestyle. Having been continually owned by the Peter Family until the death of Armstead Peter, III), Tudor Place, in addition, has a rare degree of integrity in terms of the building and grounds, and possessions (especially those associated with George and Martha Washington). The formal garden north of the house and the expansive lawn south of the house also reflect nearly two hundred years of American garden design....
