Beaumont Campus

FASEB’s historically rich Beaumont Campus spans eleven lush acres at 9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, Maryland, not far from the National Institutes of Health. The property was originally a working farm owned by the Hawley family and was acquired by FASEB in 1954.

Today, the grounds provide a quiet, estate-like setting with many gardens of seasonal flowers and ornamentals for our tenants to enjoy. Also to be discovered are beautiful boxwood hedges, an azalea garden, and many fine trees, including two Montgomery County Champion trees, the Japanese Yew and Purple Beech.  Below are the main facilities on campus. There are also several other buildings of the old Hawley estate including the barn and stables, a caretaker’s cottage and a garage. The atmosphere is relaxed and an excellent work environment.

The stone mansion of the former Hawley estate, constructed in 1929.This estate, converted to an office building, has been renamed “Beaumont House” after the distinguished American physician and pioneer physiologist, William Beaumont (1785-1853).

The Milton O. Lee Building, named for the first Executive Officer of FASEB, was constructed in successive stages beginning in1961 and ending in 1987.

The East Wing was opened in 2004 and features an atrium connecting the existing Lee Building with the East Wing.

The FASEB Conference Center accommodates meetings for groups up to 120 and can provide meal service for groups of up to fifty. A full range of audio-visual services is available in quiet conference rooms or in a theater-style auditorium.
