The Residence of the Embassy of Cameroon in Washington, D.C., also known as the Christian Hauge House, is the official residence of the Ambassador of the Republic of Cameroon to the United States. In 2009, the Embassy vacated the building temporarily to allow for a major renovation of the property, and has relocated for the meantime to 1700 Wisconsin Ave, N.W.[1]

The current ambassador of Cameroon to the United States is Jerome Mendouga.[2]

Building[edit]

Construction of the Christian Hague House began in 1906 and was designed by George Oakley Totten, Jr. The house was commissioned by Hague, a diplomat from Norway. Hague died in 1907, never seeing his mansion completed. His wife lived in the house until 1927.[3]
