Grant Quertermous tells the story of life in the oldest neighborhood in the nation's capital in his book, A Georgetown Life. Britannia Wellington Peter Kennon (1815–1911) came into contact with the many notable historical figures of the day who often visited Tudor Place, her home for over 90 years.
