To connect individuals in the Washington, D.C. area who either hail from or are deeply connected, personally or professionally, to the State of Florida.

The Florida State Society is fortunate to have a partnership with the Florida House, the only state embassy in Washington, D.C. The House was founded in 1973 by Rhea Chiles, the wife of Governor Lawton Chiles who served as Florida's 41st governor, and is owned by the people of the State of Florida. Located in a historic townhouse on Capitol Hill, Florida House serves as a "home base" for tourists as well as the business community.
