Joseph Carleton House

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

Built by Georgetown postmaster Joseph Carleton in approximately 1794, this 2-1/2 story double-house, with gabled roof, dormers, a plain facade, and rectangular transoms, represents a typical middle-class Federal period house. Due to its location in the heart of the old commercial area of Georgetown, this building probably always housed businesses on its ground floor, with living spaces above.
