Wikipedia Description: Embassy of Ukraine in Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ukrainian Embassy in Washington is the diplomatic mission of Ukraine in Washington D.C.. The embassy is located at 3350 M Street NW, in the heart of Georgetown's commercial district.
The embassy occupies Forrest-Marbury House, originally built in 1788 and housed General Uriah Forrest. Forrest was one of the leaders in the effort to establish the American capital in the area. On March 29, 1791, he hosted George Washington and other dignitaries in a dinner that marked the agreement in principle to establish the new capital. In 1800 the house was purchased by William Marbury, a prominent ally of President John Adams, best known for his role in Marbury v. Madison. The house remained the home of the Marbury family until 1891 when the changing character of the neighbourhood led John Marbury Jr. to turn it into a commercial property.
For many decades it served as the home to a wide array of businesses. Its last commercial role was as the home to a night club named Desperados. In 1986 the building was bought by a developer, refurbished, and restored to its original condition. On December 31, 1992 the building was purchased by newly-independent Ukraine to house its embassy.
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

1997 photos: Image quality isn't going to be very good because these are scans of prints. In 1997 I was using a Pentax ME Super SLR camera. This was way before I went digital so the images you see on this site were manually scanned from the original prints, some 4x6 and some 5x7. Apparently I wasn't indicating dates that I took pictures this year so I only know the month in most cases -- normally the file name tells you the date-stamp of the picture in yymmdd form but not in 1997!
