The Indonesian Embassy

The Indonesian Embassy is located at 2020 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.Washington, D.C. 20036. The building is one of the most beautiful in town.

The Walsh-McLean House is a fabulous Beaux-Arts style, 60-room mansion, which was built in 1902 for rags-to-riches gold miner Thomas F. Walsh. The building was once the social center for Dupont Circle and it was the most expensive private house built to date, at the cost of $835,000 (about $20,000,000 in 2008). The house was purchased by the Indonesian government in 1952 for $335,000.

From gold prospectors to the Red Cross, the Hope Diamond to mysterious ghosts, the mansion hides a lot of history behind his walls…
