“Protecting our rich history is the most important thing we can do as Floridians. We are more than just ‘the Mouse’- and ensuring that future generations understand that is one of my life goals. Through our educational programming both in DC and our public schools, Florida House gives students the chance to experience Florida history- and witness the making of history- from the heart of our nation’s capital.”
Florida House on Capitol Hill is Florida’s embassy in Washington, D.C., that connects, celebrates and champions Florida to the world. As the only state to have an embassy, Florida House offers students, visitors, those conducting business and our Congressional Delegation a place in Washington, D.C., to call home. For over 45 years, we have proudly flown the U.S. and Florida flags outside our windows, remaining a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that accepts no state tax dollars. Florida House is owned by the people of Florida and governed by a Board of Trustees with over 100 members from Pensacola to Miami.
