1630 Crescent Pl NW, Washington, DC 20009 Meridian House
is an exquisite historic home situated on three acres of manicured gardens. Conveniently located a mile north of the White House in the heart of the nation's capital, the property's stately elegance provides an ideal setting for the area's most prestigious events. Meridian House is a jewel of the residential architecture of John Russell Pope, who also designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Archives building. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Meridian House
was built in 1921 by Ambassador Irwin Boyle Laughlin, who filled it with his collection of 18th century French drawings and Oriental porcelains and screens. After a major renovation in 1994, the principal rooms retain their architectural detail, including such original decorative features as the over-door paintings, French brass hardware and ornate lighting fixtures. Standing the test of time, Meridian House is still considered by many to be the finest example of French urban architecture in the United States. Surrounded by walls sheltering a formal garden well-known for the grove of more than 40 European linden trees that shade a large pebbled courtyard, it is an elegant setting for private social or business events. Meridian House has been featured in publications including Washingtonian, Engaged, and Modern Bride. Meridian House Wedding-Washington DC 1630 Crescent Pl NW, Washington, DC 20009
