It’s not just an office, it’s a home.
GFWC Headquarters is a National Historic Landmark located at 1734 N Street, NW in Washington D.C. The building became GFWC’s official headquarters in 1922. The building’s historic Victorian style has been maintained through generous contributions from members and friends.
GFWC members, political dignitaries, celebrities, notable professionals, and historians are among the thousands of visitors to have walked Headquarters’ venerable hallways since 1922. If you haven’t yet done so, we encourage you to visit us!
GFWC welcomes both individuals and groups for tours, available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Each tour lasts 1 to 2 hours depending upon the number of visitors. To schedule a visit, please email GFWC@GFWC.org. Walk-ins are accepted; however, GFWC recommends scheduling a visit to ensure the best possible experience. GFWC also welcomes students and researcher visits to the Women’s History and Resource Center.
If there is time in the day to lend a helping hand, Irene Iverson will do it. A member of two GFWC clubs and recent honoree of the One OC Spirit of Volunteerism Award for 2014, Irene has been an active leader in her community since she joined the Red Cross as a volunteer at 15.
