Two Historic Houses for Your Next Event

Current Operating Status as of 7/29/2022

Meridian will be conducting annual house maintenance from August 11 through Labor Day, impacting our ability to conduct property visits during this time. Tours may be available on select dates and times based on the work schedule. If you are interested in touring during this period, please include this information in your event inquiry, and we will try our best to accommodate.

Effective March 1, 2022, and consistent with the District of Columbia’s lifting of its mask mandate, guests, vendors, and staff are no longer required to wear a cloth face covering while engaging in in-person activities at Meridian. Those who elect to wear a mask are welcome to do so.

Guests will not be permitted on campus if they are exhibiting or experiencing any of the following symptoms of COVID-19, including but not limited to: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or net loss of taste or smell; OR if they have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the previous ten days.

Our Campus

The Meridian House and the White-Meyer House, headquarters of Meridian International Center, are both examples of residential jewels of renowned architect John Russell Pope, who designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art (West Building) and the National Archives. The houses are adjacent to each other and surrounded by beautiful historic gardens, forming a city block of supreme historic and architectural interest. Each house provides a unique, unmatched venue for your next event, whether it be a corporate conference, a wedding, a special event, or a reception.
