About the embassy

The United States first established diplomatic relations with Austria when, on February 8, 1838, Heinrich A.P. Mühlenberg was appointed the first US Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Austrian Empire. When, according to the Compromise of 1867, the empire became an alliance of Austria-Hungary, the ministers were so ordered. On May 17, 1902, this position was officially upgraded to the status of an embassy, and Robert Sanderson McCormick became the first US ambassador.

The US government finally acquired the building on June 30, 1947, at the intercession of Eleonora Lansing Dulles and with the consent of the National Council of Austria. The US mission in Austria had legion status from 1947 to 1951, when it officially became an embassy, and Walter J. Donnelly was the first US ambassador to Vienna after Frederick Cortland Penfield, who set off for World War I.
