The Cleveland Abbe House, also known as Timothy Caldwell House, Monroe-Adams-Abbe House, Cleveland Abbe House or the Arts Club of Washington, is a historic house in Washington, D.C.. It is located at 2017 I Street NW.
Timothy Caldwell built the house around 1802 to 1805. James Monroe lived there from 1811 to 1817. From his inauguration as America's fifth President in March 1817 until the White House was fully restored in September 1817, the Cleveland Abbe House served as the Presidential residence. British legation occupied the building in the 1820s. Henry Adams lived here with his parents, Charles Francis Adams Sr., and Abigail Brooks, in 1860 to 1861. Cleveland Abbe, founder of the U.S. Weather Bureau, lived here from 1877 to 1909. In 1916, the Arts Club of Washington purchased the building.
