Suffragist Walking Tour
Posted on May 26th, 2020 by Elizabeth Nelson
Mary Jane Schmidt has created a new website, The Women Who Shaped DC, which includes a 1.4-mile walking tour of historical sites on the Hill: thewomenwhoshapeddc.com/capitol-hill-tour.
The website was her senior year project at BASIS DC public charter high school, and included an internship at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality Monument. She will attend Bryn Mawr College in the fall. Schmidt
is the daughter of the CHRS newsletter editor, Angie Schmidt. Mary Jane has lived on the Hill since she was 6 months old—a new generation with a deep appreciation for our neighborhood!
