The house is so full of hidden treasures like this! Come by and visit or better yet... book your upcoming final debate night or election night viewing party in our renovated Pub space!

It’s #throwbackthursday! This week we’re looking back at this portrait of FDR, signed and dedicated to one of our amazing founders, Daisy Harriman “with the warm regards of her old friend”. Shout out to our very own Visual Arts and Museum Affairs Assistant, Claire Sandberg, for finding this gem in our archives. Check back next Thursday for more throwbacks from the Whittemore House! 🤩

Valentines Murder Mystery at The Whittemore House

It's that time of the year again! Join us for the 5th Annual Valentines Murder Mystery event at The Whittemore House.

Valentine’s Day is a day of flowers and chocolates – unless you’re a scorned ex or quarreling lover out for blood. Literally. When the Whittemore House opened its doors for a Masquerade Ball no one expected a murder on the dancefloor. This Valentine’s Day Cupid’s not the only one with someone in his crosshairs.

You’ve watched the TV shows, you’ve listened to the podcasts, and now it’s time to put your murder mystery skills to the test.

DC’s history comes alive for one night only at this dangerous dinner party. Grab your Valentine, your pal-entine or your gal-entine and join us as we try to solve the Mystery of the Masquerade Ball. Valentine’s Day is a day of flowers and chocolates – unless you’re a scorned ex or quarreling...
