Old Korean Legation Museum Tour @ Old Korean Legation Museum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The Old Korean Legation is the cradle of Korea-U.S. friendship. In 1889, Korea (then Joseon) established her first diplomatic mission in the U.S. at Logan Circle, Washington, DC, but lost ownership of the legation building in 1910. 102 years later, Korea repurchased the building in 2012; restored it to its original 19th century beauty; and opened it to the public as the Old Korean Legation Museum in May 2018.

Mar 20 @ 6:45 pm

On the night of April 14, 1865, Detective James McDevitt was on duty at the Washington Metropolitan Police headquarters, a half-block from Ford’s Theatre. Just before 10:30 p.m., frantic witnesses rushed in with horrifying news: President Lincoln had been shot at the theatre.
