The story of Madison Place on the east side of Lafayette Square involves both the houses that were built there in the early part of the 19th century, the individuals who occupied them, and the major events which occurred there. Madison Place is unique in providing a glimpse into the social and diplomatic life of Washington and the residents of this historic place who helped to guide the nation through colorful, exciting and even tragic years.  

Fortunately, two of these original residential houses on Madison Place have been preserved and are among the sites of historical and cultural significance still remaining in the capital city.  To capture the spirit of this place and its long history, George Hutchinson and the Federal Circuit Historical Society undertook to writing and publishing this book as one of its key projects.
