Georgetown Housetour - this weekend!

Don't miss the Georgetown house tour THIS WEEKEND - April 28. This is the longest running house tour in the country and benefits the ministries of St John's Episcopal Church.
 Nine beautiful houses of varying styles will be featured on the tour including these 4 pictured here.
Also included is a delightful tea at St John's Parish Hall. I'm most excited by seeing inside the Georgetown Stables below, long ago converted into a quirky residence. I saw them retouching some paint in preparation for the tour just a few weeks ago and it should prove to be very interesting!
Also upcoming as part of the Georgetown Housetour is a lecture given by architect Gil Schafer on May 9th. Information is at the housetour website. Hope to see you there (at both events)!!

The first image? The turret does look castle-like, no? Pictures of interiors typically aren't allowed though unfortunately, but I'll let you know!

Stefan - All these years, I didn't know this is the longest running house tour in the country. You are a wealth of information. Enjoy Frank's beautiful home! I was just there a couple weeks ago. Have a great weekend!
