Welcome to the Heurich House Museum, which preserves the historic Victorian-era Heurich mansion as a museum, event space, and place to build community connections. The mansion, built between 1892-94, was the family home of German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich. Household staff were largely responsible for the upkeep of the large and ornate Heurich family estate in Dupont Circle. This tour will introduce you to some of the places the Heurich house staff lived while working for the family. Let’s begin by exploring what life was like for staff who lived on the grounds of the Heurich family house.
