I’ve walked along M Street in Georgetown countless times, most importantly one day way back in the Bicentennial year when dear friend Rosanne and I happened upon the CE and changed history – personal history, at least.
But somehow I never noticed the little garden gate on M Street between 30th and 31st Streets. We were walking past during an after-dinner stroll Friday evening and the magical, miniscule garden beckoned us in.
Turns out that the garden belongs to the adjacent Old Stone House, notable for being the oldest standing building in Washington, D.C.
Since we were there after tour hours (Wednesday-Sunday, 12 noon-5 pm) we didn’t get to go inside, but we were happy to spend a few moments at dusk on a sultry summer evening in such a lovely place.
Definitely worth a few moments of your time if you’re in the neighborhood.
“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” – Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
