Staycation: Anderson House

June 22, 2012

If you want the grandeur of a European manor house without leaving DC, hop off the Metro at Dupont Circle and walk down Massachusetts Avenue to Anderson House, headquarters of The Society of the Cincinnati.

Free tours of Anderson House reveal just a few of the home’s 50 ornate rooms (a Versailles-esque gold music room, a grand staircase, a massive ballroom perfect for Wednesday night waltzes) that give a taste of 1% Washington in the early 20th century.
