Description

Reputedly one of the oldest buildings on Capitol Hill, this charming house was erected in 1800 by Robert Sewall; it remained in the family for over 120 years, and served as one of Washington's first social centres. Among its noted tenants was Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury under Jefferson and Madison presidencies. According to certain sources, Gallatin worked out the financial arrangements for the Louisiana Purchase.
