The House we see today was built in 1825, by Tench Ringgold. It then went on to be owned by several people before becoming the home of Robert Low Bacon and his wife, Victoria Murray Bacon, in 1925. Virginia was known as the last “Grande Dame” of Washington D.C.’s elite social circles of her time. She was also the home’s last private owner.

    A Unique, Elegant Venue with Excellent Service

    Our experience with DACOR-Bacon was uniformly excellent. We got compliments from our guests on the unique, historic, and elegant house. The staff was helpful in the planning, transparent on costs, adaptable and followed through on our requests. The in-house chef produced a dining experience that earned praise from all, meat eaters to vegetarians. We went with the in-house florist whose creations were spectacular, far exceeding expectations. The house staff was polite and on the day came through on all our requests. We could not have asked for more and recommend DACOR Bacon House for anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue.
