Wednesday evening, organizers of this year's Georgetown House Tour celebrated with sponsors and volunteers at City Tavern Club

Through the generous support of private Georgetown residents, eight to ten houses are opened to the public, this year on April 29th. The 86th House Tour lifts off once again under the direction of Jill and Scott Altman, Georgetown residents and members of St. John’s Episcopal Church Georgetown

Capt. Altman is a veteran of four NASA space flights, spent more than 50 days in space and commanded the final two Hubble servicing missions. He also flew F-14s in the movie “Top Gun.” He is a member of the St. John’s Vestry and the first male church member to co-chair the Georgetown House Tour since it began in 1931. 

The Altmans are optimistic this year’s tour will be a special event, with some first time homes on the tour. 

Private homes and gardens will be open to Georgetown House Tour ticket holders from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on April 29, 2017.

Tickets for the House Tour include admission to tea and entertainment. Tickets may be purchased in advance online and on the day of the tour at St. John’s Georgetown Church at 3240 O Street.
