Architecture on Capitol Hill – November 2021

Posted on August 21st, 2021

“Horse walk” at 623 A St. NE

On Capitol Hill, a wide range of architectural styles and features are on display. Learn about the changing tastes and practical decisions that informed the builders’ choices. This tour was developed by CHRS President and Chair of the CHRS Historic Preservation Committee, Beth Purcell. Beth is an architectural historian with an MA in Historic Preservation from George Washington University.

Plan on walking about 2 miles in a little over an hour. Be prepared to walk in any weather; a raincoat or umbrella may be necessary. Comfortable shoes are a must.

Tickets ($15) are available through EventBrite.
This Tour is sold out but we hope to offer it again in the spring. In the meantime, you might consider the Parks tour, which has an architectural component.

Tour Times: Saturday, November 13, 1 pm and 3 pm

Queen Anne at 617 A St. NE
