Come visit us in Lafayette Square! We are home to beautiful Victorian homes, delicious independent restaurants, unique boutiques, lush gardens, and a bucolic 150-year old park. Lafayette Park is our neighborhood’s back yard, with walking paths, a beautifully landscaped grotto, historic Park House, and a playground. History surrounds you wherever you are in the Square.
We also feature unique house tours twice per year, in June and December. More information on house tours can be found here.
