A Tale of Two Houses





August 24, 2024 - May 17, 2025

Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the museum at GW, this exhibition explores the histories of two D.C., residences central to its story. In Foggy Bottom, the Woodhull House was home to notable figures in university and national history before its renovation as a museum space. In the Kalorama neighborhood, founder George Hewitt Myers recruited architect John Russell Pope to design his residence, which, together with the adjoining building, housed The Textile Museum for nearly 90 years.

This exhibition is organized by the Albert H. Small Center for National Capital Area Studies with support from the Albert and Shirley Small Family Foundation.
