Dumbarton House, an architectural standout in Georgetown for over two centuries, serves as the headquarters for The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America, as well as a historic house museum open to the public since 1932. An example of Federal period architecture, Dumbarton House offers a unique opportunity for visitors to learn about life in early America through its collections of decorative arts, paintings, and furnishings.
Within the historic house museum community, Dumbarton House strives to be a leader and actively participates in the Green Museum movement. To that end, Dumbarton House purchases renewable energy credits in the form of wind to cover all of its energy use. Dumbarton House also purchases 100 percent recycled or recyclable products whenever possible. By moving to renewable energy Dumbarton House hopes to lead the way within the field by operating the historic museum with sustainable resources.
