The Anderson House was part of my Plan B since my original sightseeing plan was derailed due to the shutdown but it really should be moved up on anyone’s list. It has an excellent story well matched to its beauty and staging. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the Society of the Cincinnati before visiting here but it is an inspiring part of American history, even if not well known, dating back to 1783 which continues today. And, the Anderson’s were an amazing and generous couple who would be pleased to know their home is so well cared for and appreciated by both the Society and the public. This building is very close to the Phillips Collection and Woodrow Wilson house so you could easily do all three in a day. Our tour guide was well informed and provided many interesting details and stories about the Andersons, the Society and the house. Highly recommended, if somewhat off the beaten path.
