The Dumbarton House, museum and headquarters of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America, and The National History Bowl (teams) and National History Bee (individuals) are pleased to announce a new and truly unique partnered event:  A history-themed pub quiz-style competition at historic Dumbarton House!


Join David Madden, a 19-day Jeopardy!™ champion and the founder of The National History Bee and Bowl; Brad Rutter, the winner of Jeopardy!™'s Ultimate tournament of Champions; and Bob Harris, the author of the humorous Jeopardy!™ memoir Prisoner of Trebekistan, for a team competition to test your history smarts in the setting of a circa 1800 Federal period mansion on the heights of Georgetown.

The $50 entry fee per person includes two glasses at the white wine bar (additional glasses available for purchase) and homemade desserts, participation in the quiz (up to 6 people to a team), prizes for the winners, and an opportunity to ask any question about Jeopardy!™ but were afraid to ask!
