Following Amelia Heurich’s death in 1956, the home at 1307 New Hampshire Ave NW was willed to the Historical Society of Washington, DC (formerly the Columbia Historical Society). The building served as their headquarters from 1956 until 2003, when they relocated to the Carnegie Library in Mt. Vernon Square. Two Heurich grandchildren then purchased the home and helped establish the non-profit Heurich House Foundation that operates the museum today.
Today, visitors can tour the museum with a docent and enjoy Castle Garden. Castle Garden is open to the public Moinday - Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM. Entrance is via public gate located at 1921 Sunderland Place NW.
The Heurich House Museum offers hour-long guided tours. Contact the museum for days, times and reservations.
