AFRH Washington, DC Home (Old Soldiers Home)

Rooms Available at The AFRH Washington DC Home (Updated Weekly)​

Welcome to the AFRH Washington DC Home

Rich in culture and history plus close to some of the best shopping and museums around.

This beautiful retirement home for Veterans has an amazing piece of history for those who served our country.

The staff is absolutely wonderful and pleasant, the homes are very clean and the environment is very healthy.

Some of the many benefits of living at the AFRH Washington DC Home that we hear over and over again is the fact that you are so close to world renown hospitals.

From Lincolns Cottage to a nine-hole golf course, and a deer heard you’ll never have a dull moment.


Today that original cottage is splendidly restored as President Lincoln’s Cottage, a National Landmark. The Scott was renamed the Sherman Building, and it serves as offices for AFRH corporate staff. The new Scott Building, which opened in 2013, is a model of modern retirement living.

Today Residents actively contribute military memorabilia and original artwork to its hallway.

The AFRH has a wide range of programs to keep you happy and healthy. Our health services are top-notch, and we have great amenities to help you enjoy life, too. We also encourage lifelong learning for our Residents.

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn to paint, do woodworking, or make a sculpture. Or maybe you’re fascinated by history, culture, and music. Whatever your interest, we will help you indulge it.

You are about to enjoy all the privileges, amenities, and camaraderie that come with living at the AFRH. Here, you will be among your own: fellow veterans and retired service members. We offer activities, programs, and amenities to maintain health and wellness. Yet, your adventure begins right here in your own personal room.

All new Residents are assigned a private, single room that is air-conditioned. The average room size in Washington, DC, is approximately 280 square feet of living space, and in Gulfport, 450 square feet of living space, including a bathroom, shower and closet.  The AFRH will provide you with a bed and armoire. Additional personal furnishings are allowed (such as a computer, desk, recliner, dresser, lamps, refrigerator, microwave, or (in Gulfport) – dinette set).  You will, however, need to supply any of these extra furnishings independently.

Each room is pre-wired for cable TV and telephone service. If you desire these services, you must order and pay for them on your own. Also please be advised that the AFRH is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is prohibited in all buildings—including Resident rooms. Specific outdoor areas are designated as “smoking areas”. So please be considerate to your comrades.
