Celebrating its 75th anniversary, Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection encourages academic exploration. The Federal-style house holds galleries with pieces from the Byzantine and pre-Columbian eras, along with the museum’s House Collection and rotating special exhibitions. Esteemed landscape gardener Beatrix Farrand designed Dumbarton’s lush grounds. In 1940, the original owners transferred most of the property to Harvard University while granting the remaining portion of the gardens to the government for public use.
