From stately monuments to picturesque police and fire call boxes that dot our capital's storied streets, history bombards us at every turn within district lines. But to properly peer into the lifestyles of our city's first residents, look no farther than Georgetown's Dumbarton House. With today's $5 Save, you can enjoy admission for two for the price of one. Built circa 1800, the Federal-style mansion — once home to the first Register of the U.S. Treasury Joseph Nourse — offers guests a distinctive look at life in Georgetown during our nation's earliest days. Dumbarton House invites visitors to explore its majestic rooms and peaceful gardens at their own pace, or call ahead to schedule a 45- to 60-minute guided tour. The museum's thousand-plus Federal period-style furniture, paintings, textiles, silver, ceramics and more provide something for lovers of history, architecture, art and landscaping alike. There's even something for musicians too — Dumbarton House is currently featuring a "Music in the Federal Period" exhibition, displaying musical treasures from the collections of the Nourse family and President James Monroe. Dumbarton House frequently hosts music, theater and other cultural exhibits. Keep an eye on the calendar to extend your afternoon tour into an evening at the estate. Don't miss this deal that would have surely received our Founding Fathers' seal of approval. Show me how to Save!
