Meridian House, built in 1921, is among the finest examples of French 18th-century urban architecture in the United States. Two stories high, the foyer is dominated by a curving double stairway leading up to the grand reception area. The principal rooms retain their architectural detail as well as many original decorative features. The drawing room, library, and dining room are stately, yet intimate. Walls shelter a formal garden, well-known for its grove of European linden trees that shade a pebbled courtyard, which combines with a rambling side garden to make Meridian House one of Washington's finest settings for outdoor events.
