Synopsis

Explores the homes and estates of Washington, D.C. that reflect the power, prestige and international influence of the U.S. government for over nearly 200 years. Features Tudor Place, a Georgetown home purchased in 1805 with money inherited from George Washington, the owner's step-grandfather; The Heurich Mansion, built by Christian Heurich, an immigrant whose brewery became one of the largest employers in Washington - second only to the federal government; and Anderson House, created by Isabel Perkins and her husband Larz Anderson, the grandest mansion in Washington shortly after the turn of the century.
