About Us

A Grand Mansion With Historic Grace & Style

Nestled in “the President’s Neighborhood” just two blocks from the White House, the magnificent historical DACOR Bacon House is the perfect setting for your Washington, D.C. wedding. Sophisticated affairs are a long-standing tradition at the DACOR Bacon House, which has witnessed weddings attended by Presidents Lincoln and Grant, among other luminaries. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is owned by the DACOR Bacon House Foundation.  Founded in 1985, the Foundation fosters international understanding, human rights and democracy through dialogue and education.

Today the DACOR Bacon House maintains its 1800s stately qualities by offering guests the modern amenities to create a most memorable wedding ceremony, reception, or both. For instance, the DACOR Bacon House can accommodate indoor and outdoor ceremonies, cocktail receptions, multi-course dinners, dancing and more.  The DACOR Bacon House staff is qualified, experienced, and dedicated to make your dream wedding a reality.
