The Whittemore House is one of Washington’s most historic and elegant mansions available for your wedding day. The House was listed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1973 and was granted museum status in 2000. The first floor Drawing Room is an irregularly shaped room that retains a richly veined pink marble hearth below the fireplace mantle. The Music Room (now known as the Hamlin Room) has an elaborate beaux-arts plaster ceiling with musical motifs. Sliding or pocket doors originally opened the Music Room to the Entrance Hall allowing music to be heard throughout the house. The Ballroom occupies the Whittemore’s original dining room, billiard room and kitchen and expanded to its current ballroom size by an addition in 1967. This banquet room is an ideal space to celebrate weddings, big or small. It has a beautiful fireplace and a hardwood floor that is perfect for dancing. Triple French doors lead to the beautiful courtyard garden, named after Lady Bird Johnson. Celebrate your wedding day at The Whittemore House.
