Anderson House [DC]

The 1905 Anderson House is a Beaux Arts mansion, which served as the residence of Larz Anderson III (1866-1937), diplomat and Ambassador to Japan, and his wife Isabel (1876-1948), author of travel memoirs, poetry, and family histories. The interior favors English and Italian elements. The collection strength is artifacts of the Revolutionary War. The house is the headquarters of the Society of Cincinnati, a society interested in Revolutionary War history.

The house offers period rooms, exhibits, guided tours, and monthly artifact presentations and talks. Reservations are required for groups of ten or more. Tours are offered in several languages, and can be tailored to specific interests given advance notice.
