William J. Boardman House

Named for its original occupants, the Boardman House now serves as the consular office of the Embassy of Iraq.

The Embassy of Iraq's consular office, also known as the Boardman House, was built in 1893 following designs by Hornblower & Marshall and is an example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. William J. Boardman and his family were the first occupants. Boardman's daughter, Mabel, led the American Red Cross in the early 20th century and continued to live in the home until her death in 1946. Since 1962 (except when diplomatic ties were severed from 1991 to 2003), the building has served as the diplomatic mission of Iraq.
