Inscription.  Sheridan-Kalorama's grand mansions, in a variety of architectural styles, are the work of many prominent architects. In 1910 Jules Henri de Sibour designed the stately mansion at 2221 Kalorama Rd. for a mining magnate. It is now the home of the French ambassador. John Russell Pope designed a Georgian home on S St., later donated by its owner to establish the Textile Museum. Also on S St. is the Wilson House, one of many designed by Waddy Wood. Ogden Codman designed the home at 2145 Decatur Pl. that is now the Thai ambassador's residence. Elegant residences on Massachusetts Ave., now the property of Turkey, Greece and Pakistan, were designed by George Oakley Totten, Jr.
