Two Historic Houses for Your Next Event

Current Event Status (last updated 8/10/2021)

Meridian’s highest priority is to protect the health and well-being of our staff, visitors and vendors. Consistent with CDC recommendations and District of Columbia guidelines, we ask all visitors, staff and vendors to wear a cloth face covering at all times when indoors, except for moments they are eating, drinking or taking photographs.   Visitors to the Meridian campus acknowledge that risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses exist in any public or private space where people are present and gather. 

To prevent the further spread of COVID-19, sanitation stations have been established in high traffic areas throughout the property. Meridian maintenance professionals regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as door knobs, elevator buttons, staircase railings and restroom facilities. All Meridian staff wear cloth face coverings while in common areas on the property and submit health surveys prior to arriving on campus. 

Persons exhibiting signs of illness, including but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, fever, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, fatigue, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea are prohibited from attending in-person gatherings. 

Our Campus

The Meridian House and the White-Meyer House, headquarters of Meridian International Center, are both examples of residential jewels of renowned architect John Russell Pope, who designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art (West Building) and the National Archives. The houses are adjacent to each other and surrounded by beautiful historic gardens, forming a city block of supreme historic and architectural interest. Each house provides a unique, unmatched venue for your next event, whether it be a corporate conference, a wedding, a special event, or a reception.
