1. Old Korean Legation Museum Marker
Inscription.  This building used to house the first diplomatic mission of Korea (then Joseon) in the U.S. from 1889 through 1905. As such, it is a landmark that represents the cradle of the Korea-U.S. partnership. Restored to its original beauty in 2018 after 113 years' closure, it now serves as a museum. We welcome you to come in and share the time-honored friendship between Korea and the U.S.A.
