Welcome to Evermay

One of the last remaining private estate home and gardens in Washington, DC. Known as Evermay since the 18th century, one of the last remaining private estate homes in Washington, DC stands proudly on the heights of Georgetown, on what was originally part of the “Rock of Dumbarton” land tract. Evermay was the creation of Samuel Davidson, noted 18th century Maryland and Georgetown businessman and international maritime merchant, as well as one of nineteen important proprietors of the new City of Washington. Mr. Davidson owned more than 150 acres of land in the heart of the city -- land eventually occupied by the White House, Treasury, Old Executive Office Building and Lafayette Park. When meeting with George Washington in 1791 at Suter’s Tavern to decide the location of the capital city, Davidson was one of Georgetown leaders to realize the importance of the watershed and the port of Georgetown for the future expansion and governance of the fledgling nation.

Beautiful Gardens

Today Evermay’s grounds and gardens consist of approximately four acres of property surrounded on two sides by Oak Hill Cemetery.

Several trees on the property may remain from the time when Samuel Davidson purchased the property. Historians believe that much of the lumber used in building the house came from trees on the property, and the bricks came from Samuel Davidson’s brickyards which supplied bricks used in construction of the White House and other federal buildings.
