Tudor Place Historic House and Gardens, 1644 31st Street, NW, Washington, DC
Built in 1805, Tudor Place was the home of members of the Peter family. Thomas Peter, the son of a Scottish tobacco factor, and Martha Custis Peter, the granddaughter of George and Martha Washington, built Tudor Place as their urban residence. They relied upon the labor of enslaved people and, after emancipation, freed Black and Irish immigrant servants to maintain their gardens, help with child care, nurse them through sickness, and cook their meals. The Tudor Place Archive documents this family and the lives of these free and enslaved servants.
