Join the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., and photographer and architectural history raconteur Chris Earnshaw for a stroll and discover the people, places and scenes of bygone Mt. Vernon Square.
This gently paced 90-minute walking tour will begin outside the main entrance to the Carnegie Library and end at the west entrance to the National Building Museum; participants are encouraged to visit the related DISTRICT II exhibit, including more than 50 of Earnshaw’s photographs, prior to or after concluding the tour.
DISTRICT II is a visual survey of downtown D.C. from the 1960s onwards, featuring the works of Bill Barrett, Chris Earnshaw, and Joseph Mills. The exhibit is organized by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., and presented in partnership at the National Building Museum, November 19, 2016 – February 12, 2016.
