Host your next event with us!
The Meserve-Lloyd House of International Student House of Washington, D.C. provides a unique and historic venue for dinners or receptions, business conferences or meetings, and corporate events.
The House is located in the heart of Washington, DC’s dynamic Dupont Circle neighborhood in close proximity to the Metro system and other public transportation.
Built in 1912 as a private residence, the Meserve-Lloyd House evokes characteristics of the Tudor Era. One distinctive feature of the House is the leaded glass windows, the most striking of which is a semi-circular bay enclosing the landing of the grand staircase. The second-floor gallery also has large leaded windows and floor to ceiling dark oak wainscoting, as do the Library and Study. The House’s magnificent two-story Great Hall is modeled after a space in Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, England. Furnishings include original pieces dating backing to the Elizabethan era and the Renaissance Revival period.
