"Spanish-Themed Cultural Center"

Built in 1922, this fabulous Beaux-Arts mansion was constructed at the behest of Mary Foote Henderson upon the designs of George Oakley Totten as a residence for the Vice President of the United States and a memorial to her son. The mansion at 16th and Fuller was instead purchased by the Spanish Embassy and maintained as the official residence of the Spanish Ambassadors until the turn of the century. With its rich architectural details and elegant design, the mansion has come to be a popular landmark and has been revived as a cultural center. The Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain hosts a vibrant and varied cultural program with a preference for Spanish themes, including film screenings, exhibitions, lectures, conferences, festivals, performances and more.
