Georgetown’s Old Stone House, a circa 1765 building at 3051 M St. NW, will close to the public on Monday for 13 months of renovation, the National Park Service announced over the weekend.

Would-be visitors hoping to visit in advance of the closure should also be aware of reduced hours — 11 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. — through Sunday, according to a news release. Its museum collection has already been relocated off-site.

The project involves installing a fire detection and suppression system; upgrading the HVAC and electrical systems; stabilizing the foundation; and fixing exterior stonework, the release states. The property is scheduled to reopen Dec. 1, 2018.
