In anticipation of the 66th anniversary of the Mothers Day Tour, the Society is holding a photo contest – “The Capitol Hill Home.” The submission deadline is March 5, 2023. And here’s a look back at prior years: 2022 winners, 2021 winners2020 winners, 2019 winners,  2018 winners, 2017 winners

We’re privileged to live in an environment that is a delight to the eye, with tree shaded streets, lush gardens, yard ornaments, and houses with a wealth of architectural detail. Iron stoops, arched windows, stained glass transoms, ornate brickwork, welcoming porches…  all hallmarks of the quintessential Capitol Hill home.

We’d like to know how you define “The Capitol Hill Home.”  So show us – take a hi-resolution (1MB or larger) exterior shot of what you think makes a home a Capitol Hill home and email it to If you are using a cell phone photo, you may text it to 202.329.7864 instead. Be sure to include your name and address, email address, and the address of the property in the photo.

The winning images will be awarded two complementary passes to the next in-person House & Garden Tour (or walking tour) and will be displayed on the website.

In submitting your photo to the CHRS House Tour photo contest, you agree that it will become the property of CHRS, which may reproduce, modify, and digitize and adapt the photograph. You retain the right to continued use of the image.
