Heurich House Museum

Description And Comments

On 20th St and its intersection with New Hampshire Ave, you will see the fortress-like Heurich House, also referred to as the Brewmasters Castle. This house was built to be the residence of Christian Heurich, a German immigrant who made his fortune brewing beer (the brewery closed in 1956).

The house itself was constructed between 1892 and 1894 and is the interior is a masterpiece, practically bursting with intricate carved wood, hand-made furniture, and exquisite statuary. The rooms have been kept much the way they were during the brewmaster’s life.
