Notes
  • Significance: Decatur is unique in this country: the work of a great architect Benjamin H. Latrobe, built for a great American naval commander Commodore Stephen Decatur, preserved the original drawings. This is s a set of circumstances impossible to equal elsewhere.

However distinguished Decatur House may be historically, it is equally distinguished architecturally. Designed by Benjamin H. Latrobe, our first professional architect, it was built in 1810 on a site of great importance, a neighbor of the White House with ample fund s derived from Decatur's prize money.
