A nationally-designated historic district, Georgetown was founded in 1751, nearly half a century before the District of Columbia, as a bustling port city on the banks of the Potomac. Lined with quaint cobblestone streets and 18th and 19th century architecture, the neighborhood is a delightful mix of the past and present. Click here to learn more about historic Georgetown.
