The Old Stone House, part of the Landmark District of Georgetown, is the only surviving pre-Revolutionary building in the capital. The house stands on its original site, lot #3, one of eighty lots surveyed in the port of Georgetown in 1751.

Christopher Layman, a carpenter, is believed to have begun construction of the house in 1764. In 1766 Layman's widow, Rachael, had the front portion of the house completed. The National Park Service acquired the building during the Sesquicentennial of Washington under an act of Congress approved September 25, 1950.
