Enjoy a tour of the Anderson House Museum, a stunning Beaux Arts mansion, the home of The American Revolution Institute and The Society of Cincinnati in Dupont Circle. Built for Larz and Isabel Anderson, it is a symbol of Gilded Age splendor in Washington DC. The Anderson’s commissioned the Boston firm of Little and Browne to build their 50-room winter home on Massachusetts Avenue in 1905. Mr. Anderson was a diplomat and served in Belgium, London, Rome, and Japan where he, and his wife Isabel, acquired a fabulous art collection.

The house is rich with European and Asian decorative arts as well as portraits by leading American artist such as Charles Willson Peale, Gilbert Stuart and Samuel F.B. Morse and Cecillia Beaux. Built to showcase their collection and for entertainment, the mansion has a ballroom with a musicians gallery where many concerts and performances took place. The Andersons were one of the capital’s most sought-after hosts from 1905-1937. Among their prominent guests were Presidents Taft and Coolidge, General Pershing, the Vanderbilt family and diplomats.

Walk back from the tour and enjoy a special lunch at our club. Cost for an elegant two course lunch with a glass of sparkling wine and tour is $50.00 for members and $60.00 for non-members. This includes lunch, a donation to Anderson House and the WNDC. Registration limited to 25 individuals.
