DC-SLA Chapter Holiday Party/Business Meeting

The Mansion on O Street & O Street Museum are conveniently located in historic Dupont Circle, within walking distance to The White House, Embassy Row. With over 100 rooms and 70 secret doors, it is one of the most unique properties in the world.


A Rich History

Designed in 1892 by Edward Clark, architect for the US Capitol at the turn of the 20th century, the buildings were interconnected and served as a home for himself, his brother James “Champ” Clark, Speaker of the House (during Teddy Roosevelt’s Presidency), and a third brother, known as "the artist."

In the 30's it was converted into rooming houses for J. Edgar Hoover's G-men.

In the 1960's, the student leaders of the protest movement lived here, as documented by Norman Mailer.

The Mansion is proud to have been called home by Mrs. Rosa Parks — a resident of The Mansion when she visited DC — and hosted political leaders, dignitaries, and religious leaders with us.

Please join the DC-SLA Chapter for their annual Holiday Party and Business meeting. Meet up with other professionals, make new connections or join up with past colleagues. 

Join a tour followed by the annual Business Meeting and networking.
