The Embassy is located in the historic Sheridan-Kalorama Area in a building known as the Moses House. This historic property began the transformation of Sheridan-Kalorama from a rural forest to one of the elite residential areas of the U.S. Capital.
In 1893, Thomas Franklin Schneider designed the house for the family of W.H. Moses, owner of a renowned furniture and carpet store. In 1925 it was redesigned to its current neo-classical appearance.
Moses House served as a French Embassy and Chancery from the 1940s until 1984. An interesting tale related to this house is portrayed in Danielle Steel’s bestseller "Crossings" concerning the pre-World War II activities of the French Ambassador who worked and resided here at the time. After the French Embassy sold the property, it remained vacant and the building physically deteriorated.
The Republic of North Macedonia acquired the property and initiated an extensive renovation in 2004. On October 26, 2005, it opened as the new home of the Embassy of the Republic of Macedonia in Washington D.C., as well as the residence for the Ambassador.
Metro/parking: The Embassy is located just off Connecticut Avenue, about 3/4 of a mile from both the DuPont and Woodley Park Metro Stations. For those driving, there is street parking which, while always limited, improves after 6:30 pm
