Street parking is very limited and passing can be tight on the small neighborhood streets near Meridian Hill Park. Consider Metro, taxi, Uber or Lyft — the nearest Metro Stations are U Street and Columbia Heights.
Please note that in this historic two-story mansion, only the first level is ADA accessible. Event greeters at the front door will be available to escort anyone needing to utilize the ADA entrance around to the back of the building.
