They are the finest homes in America's capital, splendid mansions that embody the heritage of the nation and the wealth and prestige of their illustrious owners. CAPITAL CITY is an engaging, behind-the-scenes tour of three of these Washington landmarks. Built in 1805 with money inherited from George Washington, Tudor Place hosted the cream of society for nearly two centuries. Ulysses S. Grant, Henry Clay and Lafayette are among the many to enjoy the hospitality here, surrounded by an astonishing collection of Old World furnishings and priceless artifacts. In The Heurich Mansion, the glory of European craftsmanship is the main attraction. Built by brewer Christian Heurich whose company was once Washington's second biggest employer it features hand-painted ceilings and intricate woodwork. Finally, the splendid Anderson House was a fitting home for "the richest girl in the world." Its grand halls, reception rooms and stunning ballroom recall the golden days of society entertainment, and welcomed many presidents.
