Anderson House – The American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati
Your event allows the Society to support the ideals of the family who built this Beaux-Arts masterpiece—continued today by the Society of the Cincinnati in its educational mission—to preserve the memory of the American Revolution and the principles for which its leaders fought. You also help us maintain this uniquely intact historic venue on Washington's Embassy Row, which is ideal for holding your corporate or private event.
Completed in 1905 for Ambassador Larz Anderson and his wife, Isabel, the exquisite property was left to the Society in 1938 and serves as its headquarters today. Our marble-lined spaces accommodate a variety of functions, from large cocktail gatherings to intimate dinners and dances. The Gilded Age house museum also makes a perfect backdrop for wedding portraiture. Consider the holiday season for your event at Anderson House—decorated with a grand tree in the Ballroom and poinsettia and garland-festooned architectural details throughout the house.
We provide museum security and vendor supervision during, and housekeeping following, every private event. We also suggest including museum docents at your event to answer guests' questions about the house and its collections or to give tours of the museum. Anderson House is wheelchair accessible and conveniently located two blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station (Red line). Valet parking and a taxi stand are located adjacent to our property at the Fairfax Hotel.
