Scottish immigrants shaped the Georgetown community we know today.  These Scots, men such as Robert Peter who emigrated from Lanarkshire to Maryland, settled the area and became wealthy merchants and landowners. Tudor Place welcomes John King Bellassai, JD, of the St. Andrew's Society of Washington, DC who will speak on the history of Georgetown by examining its Scottish roots. Following the lecture, view Robert Peter's Scottish snuffbox, ca. 1751 - 1799, a mourning ring commemorating the life of Robert Peter, and Martha Peter's ca. 1790 - 1810 pink kid shoes. 

6:30 p.m. - scotch tasting with bagpipe music
