Washington, DC: Georgetown — district older than the city

As you know, the Americans built a capital in a place where there was practically nothing before. However, not nothing at all, because an older town, Georgetown, found itself in the outskirts of the new capital. One can find there a few buildings older than the city in which they are currently located.

In addition, there is a picturesque canal (although under renovation) and elegant residential buildings, which this quarter owes to the fashion of living in this quiet corner of the capital, in particular among the elite, which has lasted here since the mid-20th century.
