Tudor Place was built by Martha Curtis Peter, the granddaughter of Martha Washington and her husband Thomas Peter, the son of a successful Tobacco merchant. Tudor place remained under the ownership of the Peter family for six successive generations. After the last owner Armistead Peter III died, this estate was opened as a historical site and opened to the public in 1988 under the stewardship of the Tudor Place foundation.
