Events | Washington DC

Washington DC has a lot to offer the Turcophile. The nation's capital has historic, diplomatic and cultural ties to Turkey and the Ottoman Empire, and Islamic art is well respresented in the Smithsonian's Sackler and Freer Galleries. Home to the nation's government, Washington is also where foreign embassies are to be found. The Turkish Embassy, purchased in 1936, occupies Everett House, built by the 'Bottle-top" millionaire, Edward H. Everett, who invented the handy stopper.
