German-American Clubs in the United States

The German-American Heritage Foundation of the USA®

German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™

The German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™ opened in March, 2010 in a building once known as Hockemeyer Hall. Renovations were completed by the GAHF after acquiring the building in 2008. Located on 6th Street NW in the heart of the old European-American section of Washington, the Museum sits in what is now a thriving commercial neighborhood.

The exhibit provides a glimpse into the rich heritage and cultural life of German-American clubs across the country – with some dating back to colonial times. These clubs showcase the continued influence of the German way in the United States through their wide variety of cultural and social programs; many of them are GAHM member clubs, which are part of our dense network of a larger German-American community within the country. Please stop by to celebrate these clubs, past and present, which have kept the traditions of Germans and German-Americans alive for centuries.
In case you missed our previous calls to participate, it is not too late to order a panel! While we may not be able to feature it in our physical exhibit, we can design and produce them for you! Please contact Katja Sipple at [email protected].
