Event Details

Did you know the area south/southwest of Tenley Circle was home to a spy, nuns, a fox hunting club, codebreakers, and an orphanage? Explore Washington's second oldest village with Tenleytown Historical Society member Farleigh Earhart and learn more about the rich history of our neighborhood.



What are my transportation/parking options getting to the event?

What should I bring with me?

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and layers suited to the weather. This tour takes place outside (no building interiors). Walkers are also encouraged to bring a bottle of water with them.
