The Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington, D.C. has recently been named to the Washington, DC DC Inventory of Historic Sites! Such commendation speaks to the century-long heritage of our 16th street mansion, whose murals and decorations are on display to the public. See here for more information about visiting the Mexican Cultural Institute, and here for more about the mansion's history.
Listing in the D.C. Inventory of Historic Sites provides recognition of properties significant to the historic and aesthetic heritage of the nation's capital. The Mexican Cultural Institute was chosen not only as a premier example of the Beaux Arts architectural tradition with historic interior artwork, but also for its association with the rise of Meridian Hill as the home to foreign embassies, and its exemplary illustration of the City Beautiful Movement, which sought to promote beautiful architecture beyond Washington's monumental core.
