Josh Kline

Josh started as the Annual Funds and Grant Coordinator of Dumbarton House in October 2016. He holds both a M.A from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.A. from Bloomsburg University in Art History. Josh’s M.A. concentrated on ecclesiastical architecture and interior decoration. Josh has always had a proclivity for historic houses and has volunteered, interned, and been employed by several since 2009 when he was awarded a Keystone Summer Internship through the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.

Josh grew up in central Pennsylvania and moved to Richmond, VA in 2010, where he stayed for six years—falling in love with the city’s art scene, grit, and quirkiness – before moving to DC. In addition to his museum experience, he has an extensive background in Customer/Client Services and Office Administration. In his free time Josh enjoys biking around the city and is looking forward to exploring the nation’s capital.


For lunch, Josh is known for bringing to work his “supremely magnificent meals” –coworker. A new hobby of his is to experiment in the kitchen, expanding his culinary repertoire. Over the past year Josh has focused on exploring California, visiting several coastal cities/towns. Big Sur is still his favorite for its charm, cliff-top views, and memories made.
