Anderson House & The American Revolution Institute

Explore the Anderson House, home of The American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati headquarters. A National Historic Landmark in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Since 1938, the Society has made its headquarters at Anderson House, where it has worked to advance its mission to honor the men and women who won American independence in the Revolutionary War. Tours of the mansion reveal the history of the Society of the Cincinnati, the significance of the American Revolution, and the lives and collections of the home’s first owners, Larz and Isabel Anderson. The mansion was completed in 1905 for the Andersons, a wealthy couple who devoted their lives to public service, travel, entertaining, collecting, and philanthropy—interests and activities that are reflected in Anderson House, where much of the couple’s art collection and furnishings are still on display.
