Site Visit: Josephine Butler Parks Center


One of the things I love most about DC is how you can find yourself on a busy street, filled with vendors, restaurants and other commercial stores.. and next thing you know you're in a quaint, shade tree filled neighborhood. it is exactly how my walk from the Columbia Heights Metro station led me to the Josephine Butler Parks Center.



Here's the kicker- ladies, I know how you love them- but those Chivari chairs are not always in the budget- so you may decide to pass them by. Drumroll please...



At JBPC, you don't have to make sacrifices! They have a multitude of cocktail rounds, round guest tables, and chivari chairs for you to choose from. Of course, you are always welcome to rent additional items- but this is a great starting point!





A walk up the red velvet stairs takes you to the second floor, to the main dining room. The foyer is a perfect space for a dance floor, (my client in the fall is putting the DJ atop the landing on the staircase!) There are two beautiful fireplaces and mantles in the main dining room. I love the details and molding- the entire mansion is full of charm and beauty.





It's conveniently located adjacent to Meridian Park. Guests will not only enjoy the spectacular views from the second floor veranda- but you can get some great photos in the park!
