Event description

Description

Piscataway Park, located on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland, is the first park in the nation to be established to protect a historic view: that of George Washington’s Mount Vernon home. Piscataway Park is also the site of the Moyaone Reserve, a community with the most eclectic mix of mid-century modern architecture in the Washington D.C. area. Join mid-century modern enthusiasts around the D.C. area for an exclusive afternoon of exploration and conversation as we offer discoveries about architectural design and historic and environmental conservation.
