Nassif House Jeddah

Nassif House Jeddah

Built in the 1870s for the Nassif family, one of Jeddah’s oldest and most respected merchant clans, it was home to 100 members of the family and their staff. The building has four storey’s at the front and seven at the back, and until the 1970s it was the tallest building in Jeddah. King Abdul Aziz requisitioned the house in 1925 while his palace was being constructed – hence the name of its location, King Abdul Historical Square. The King and his army were welcomed here by the people of Jeddah on 23 September 1924, celebrated every year since as National Day. Note the tree in front of the house – until 1920 this was the only one in Jeddah. In 1964 the government bought the house and converted it into a museum, now housing an interesting cultural and heritage exhibition. (Source)
