Visiting Headquarters

GFWC Headquarters is not just an office. It’s a home and a National Historic Landmark, located at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington D.C. The building became GFWC’s official headquarters in 1922. GFWC members, political dignitaries, celebrities, notable professionals, and historians are among the thousands of visitors to have walked Headquarters’ venerable hallways since 1922. The building’s historic style has been maintained through generous contributions from members and friends. It is also home to our archives and library, the Women’s History and Resource Center (WHRC).

Visits to Headquarters, whether to do research in the WHRC or to tour the historic rowhouses that make up our HQ building, are by appointment only and on a limited schedule. We are not able to welcome walk-in visitors at this time. Nonetheless, if you are planning to be in D.C. and want to visit us, please contact our front office (for tours) or the WHRC (for research) at least two weeks in advance, and will we do our best to accommodate you!
