McFly Report: Inside a Georgetown mansion

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Have you ever wanted to walk up to a mansion and get a peek inside? This weekend, you have your chance and it's for a good cause.

On the Georgetown House Tour, you can check out 10 different gorgeous homes that are normally locked. We got an exclusive first look inside one of the homes known as Quality Hill and does it ever have a history!

Barbara Wolf with the Georgetown House Tour told us, "This house was commissioned in 1797 by John Mason. John Mason was George Mason's nephew."

A physician also lived at the home during the War of 1812. "He was a stanch Federalist and he actually housed British soldiers who were wounded here in the home," shared Wolf.

"You can imagine the cast of individuals this house has seen over the years, from President and Mrs. Kennedy to President Clinton," added Wolf.

This Saturday, you can join the ranks of esteemed guests. Find out how to get tickets for the tour, which is in its 84th year, here.

The historic walk benefits local organizations that serve the D.C. community and St. John's Georgetown. One thousand people are expected to take the tour.
