Those who lived in Georgetown include Thomas Jefferson,
William Corcoran, Francis Scott Key, Alexander Graham Bell, Jack and Jackie Kennedy, Bobby and Ethel Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Averell and Pamela Harriman, Elizabeth Taylor and John Warner, Henry Kissinger, Pierre Salinger, Dean Acheson and Herblock.
