Thomas Nelson Page House

The Thomas Nelson Page House was designed by Stanford White of McKim, Mead and White in an early Georgian Revival style. It occupies a prominent corner on New Hampshire Avenue, three blocks from Dupont Circle. Built in 1896, it was designed for writer Thomas Nelson Page and his second wife, Florence Lathrop Field Page.

In Washington, the Page House was a harbinger of the architectural style based on English American Colonial precedent, which was to gain much prominence in succeeding decades. As the home of one of the most noted postbellum literary figures in the South, it was a center of Washington literary life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With the exception of alterations made by Stanford White in 1902, the house is largely intact.
