About DACOR Bacon House

The DACOR Bacon House is a museum in the downtown Washington, D.C. area. This historic mansion stands proudly as a brick mansion in the city with a rotunda entranceway and cedar shutters. Couples will find this a stately wedding venue in northwest Washington, D.C., just a block and half from the White House.

Facilities and Capacity

The reception rooms within the mansion itself can accommodate up to 180 guests for a standing reception. This historic decor includes antique-style furniture, gold-framed wall art and decorated carpeting. Ornate crown molding runs along the ceiling and the walls of the many rooms in this space. On the first floor, can be used transformed to a dance floor. The second-floor grand piano is available by request. Outside, couples will find an attractive half-acre garden. This space, with brick patio underfoot and enclosed by brick walls, accommodates up to 140 guests for a seated ceremony. The white pergola in the corner of the garden frames couples beautifully for their ceremony, with trees and flowers growing all around. The white pergola and white chairs stand out beautifully against the red brick of this venue.

Services Offered

In addition to their ceremony and reception, couples can also host their bridal shower, their engagement party, rehearsal dinner, in the House or Garden.

History

The first recorded owner of the land on which the House rests was David Burns a Scottish immigrant, the property then went on to owned by Tobias Lear, private secretary to George Washington. 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 “Grande Dame” of Washington D.C.’s elite social circles of her time. She was also the home’s last private owner. In the 1960s, she had the House placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The House has been the home to DACOR and the DACOR Bacon House Foundation since 1982.

    Cozy historical venue

    Our wedding was in winter so it was indoors. The ambience was astonishing and all our guests were impressed. You are literally having your wedding in a historical house/museum. That was the first place that we saw, and we didn't find the need to look any further (and I am the type of person who would check out 10 different stores just to buy a t-shirt). The staff were friendly, professional, and on-time. The dinner (particularly steak with blue cheese) was also amazing!
    NOTE: It is perfect for perhaps up to 70 guests if you want to have everyone in the main rooms (not in the back side that people may feel a bit isolated or 2nd class)!
