Embassy Row Facts

  • Embassy Row was once the home of Al Gore. The Fairfax is what the building is now known as, although it was not a hotel at the time of Al Gore's residence.
  • Original owner of the Hope Diamond Evalyn Walsh McLean, lived on Embassy Row. She would keep the infamous diamond at her home during the day, but had it transported to a safe deposit box each night.
  • The Marble Fountain at DuPont Circle is a tribute to the art of ocean navigation. The three nude figures featured in the design represent the sea, the stars and the wind.
  • Embassy Row is the home of the Woodrow Wilson House. It is the only presidential museum in Washington, D.C.
  • Considered Washington's premier residential address in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Massachusetts Avenue became known for its numerous mansions and gained the nickname "Millionaires' Row".
  • The Great Depression caused many to sell their homes on the high socialite stretch. The expansive old estates proved well-suited for use as embassies, and also as lodges of social clubs, giving Embassy Row its present name and identity.
