The Anderson House was once the home of Lars Anderson III, a diplomat from a wealthy family in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The mansion is located in the heart of Dupont Circle, Washington DC, 10 minutes away from our Washington DC accommodations, where the Anderson family held inaugural balls and celebrations throughout Washington’s social season. The goal of Washington’s elite at that time was to make the nation’s capital a stylish and modern city with a great senses of patriotism, and the Anderson played a major role in that movement.
The home is now headquarters of the Cincinnati Society which has the mission to preserve the history of and honor the veterans of the Revolutionary War.
The Anderson House is open and free to the public for public tours Tuesday through Saturday from 1pm-4pm. The mansion is closed, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day, as well as selects times of year for Society meetings.
