The White House Historical Association offers free public tours of historic Decatur House every Monday, excluding holidays.* A fixture of the president’s neighborhood since 1818, Decatur House has been home to foreign and American dignitaries, secretaries of state, members of Congress, and a vice president, in addition to numerous free and enslaved servants who played a pivotal role in shaping America. Visit and explore the nearly 200-year history of Decatur House and its Slave Quarters, one of only a few remaining examples of slave quarters in an urban setting, and learn more about the many additional programs and offerings of the Association.

Tours begin at 1610 H Street, NW at 11:00am, 12:30pm, and 2pm, and last approximately one hour. No reservations are necessary.

*Decatur House tours are suspended indefinitely. We will restart tours when the coronavirus spread has been mitigated and health officials indicate we can safely open to guests. Please check back here for updates.
