Beatty-Stuart House (Hyde House)

This home was originally built for Charles Beatty, the ferryman that would transport passengers between Georgetown and Virginia.

This Federal style brick house was built for Col. Charles Beatty. Beatty owned the ferry between Georgetown and Virginia, a crucial link between the two points prior to the construction of a bridge. It was also the residence of Thomas Hyde, and his son Anthony, who were secretaries to W. W. Corcoran, one of DC’s prominent financial figures and co-founder of Riggs National Bank in 1840. Built in 1798, the Beatty-Stuart House would be expanded, most likely by Joshua Stuart in 1832. This changed the facade and further highlights the home’s name.
