Joseph Carleton House

Joseph Carleton served as Georgetown's postmaster from 1799-1803.

Built by Joseph Carleton, circa 1794, this 2-1/2 story, double-house with gabled roof, dormers, plain facade and rectangular transoms, represents a typical middle-class Federal period house.

A very early 19th century building, in the heart of the old commercial area of Georgetown, that probably always was used for business (ground floor) as well as residence (above).
