Heurich House Museum
About Us
The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich (1842-1956) and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC. Recognized as Washington, D.C.’s most successful brewer, Heurich built his Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. into one of the most important manufacturing businesses in the city, and the last surviving pre-Prohibition brewery. He and his family lived in their Dupont Circle mansion from its completion in 1894 until his wife’s death in 1956. The historic home is notable for its technological innovations and original interiors, as well as a rich archival collection of the city’s most important historic families. Today the building operates as a museum, and is open for regular public events, exhibitions, tours, and private event rentals.
We Participate Because
The Heurich House Museum’s mission guides us to preserve Christian Heurich’s legacy in Washington DC, and also aims to enrich the city’s cultural life. One way we can contribute to the culture of our immediate community is to make sure its spaces are available and accessible for everyone’s enjoyment. Many of our projects reflect this principle, from the development of the “Brewmaster Studios” artist studios in our carriage house, to keeping our garden open for public use during the day. The Sonny Bono Park Rehabilitation Project is an extension of that work.
