The Friends of the Historic DACOR Bacon House was established
in 2021 to support the preservation of a singularly unique
house - not only a respected center for the study and furtherance
of American diplomacy, but a monument to a close and
continuing connection to the Supreme Court.

Originally built in 1825, the DACOR Bacon House is an
outstanding example of Federal period architecture, one of
only a few in the President's Neighborhood. Virtually from the
beginning and through the dawn of the 20th century, the House
served as a temporary home to Supreme Court justices and
officials. Chief Justice John Marshall and several other justices
lived in the House during the 1832 and 1833 terms. In fact, eight
Presidents and countless dignitaries have been welcomed to the
House over the years.

Today, DACOR Bacon House is a locus for a broad range of
foreign policy-oriented educational and cultural activities and
serves as a testament to America's diplomatic heritage. We look
forward to the continuation of our century-long relationship
with the Supreme Court - now, through our collaboration with
the Supreme Court Historical Society. Your founding support
of this event marks the formal establishment of the Friends of
the Historic DACOR Bacon House as we endeavor to ensure its
preservation for future generations.
