to your home on the hill

“TMH — welcoming & serving generations of young women in DC since 1887”

While you can always retreat to your private room, at TMH, you never have to worry about eating alone. There are plenty of opportunities to be social; to connect with fellow residents. From the dining hall to the piano room; the private gardens to the library. And just outside our front door, a community – a city – awaits.

Meet TMH

We have been welcoming residents since 1833. A few decades ago, we began inviting residents to share stories of their time at TMH. Here, we’ve collected a few. Find out, in their words, what makes TMH special. (And to catch a glimpse what it was like to live as a woman on Capitol Hill in past eras!)
