Georgetown was founded in 1751 in the Province of Maryland, predating the establishment of the federal district and the city of Washington by 40 years. It was an important colonial port city because it was the furthest upstream that oceangoing boats could navigate the Potomac River. Georgetown remained a separate municipality until 1871 when the US Congress created a new consolidated government for the entire District of Columbia.
Internationally renowned Georgetown University was founded in 1789 by the Jesuit order of the Catholic Church and is the oldest school of its kind in the United States. It has grown into a major institution best known for its Medical Center as well as the Schools of Foreign Service, Business, and Law.
The housing stock is predominantly row houses in both Federal and Victorian styles some of which date back to the late 1700s as well as a fair number of large, detached homes on significant lots. Over the years, a long list of notable people have called Georgetown home including Thomas Jefferson, Francis Scott Key, Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Madelaine Albright, and John Kerry.
