Friday Night at the Anderson House - $40
Friday, March 15th
6:30 - 9:30 PM
Join NCHE and The Society of the Cincinnati for an evening at the Anderson House.  When completed in 1905, the Anderson House took its place as one of the capital city’s most fashionable mansions, a “Florentine villa in the midst of American independence.”  To the Andersons, their Washington home represented the culmination of what America's founders, including George Washington, hoped their capital city would become—a grand, modern city to rival European capitals, but with a patriotic identity and a sense of history that would make it distinctly American.  The National Historic Landmark was gifted to the Society of the Cincinnati in 1939 and has been open to the public as a museum since.  You’ll enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and a host bar as you mingle with fellow attendees.  It’s the perfect way to unwind after a fulfilling day at the conference.
