Tudor Nights: The Desk Set

Tudor Place Historic House and Garden

1644 31st Street NW

Washington, D.C. 20007

$20| Members: FREE

Travel back to a time when “Office” meant a physical space and “desktops” were desktops, hard surfaces covered in wood and leather rather than blinking icons. Those desks and the objects that adorned them tell us volumes about their users, and nowhere more than in the richly outfitted early 20th-century Office at Tudor Place. From crystal and silver keepsakes to humble working tools, they show us how differently we lived and worked in the pre-digital age. Join us for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a close-up interaction with objects both functional and handsome and the stories they can tell us.

Ages 21+.
Admission includes wine, beer, soft drinks, and appetizers.
Tudor Nights, offered four times a year, are FREE for Individual (1 person) and Family (2) members. Consider a membership today!
