As you might guess, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) won’t have a physical House and Garden Tour this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But to keep the continuity of our annual tour (63 years!), and to keep in contact with the community at a safe distance, we’re offering this virtual house tour, featuring homes from past tours and others never before seen, all free of charge. We want to thank our sponsors for their incredible support and understanding.

Thank you to the Rob and Brent Group, our PLATINUM Sponsor. Thank you to our SILVER sponsors – National Capital Bank, Michael Halebian & Co., and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Thank you to our many advertisers, their logos sprinkled through the nine tour pages. We hope you remember their support as you make decisions on who to call for services.

Thank you to our home owners for opening their doors to us! We appreciate your giving us a peek into your wonderful homes.

Finally, thank you to you for your interest and support of CHRS’ house tour! We hope you will consider joining CHRS – it’s the easiest way to support the Capitol Hill Restoration Society.




This virtual tour uses digital technology that allows you to “walk” through the homes in 3D and zoom in on points of interest. Click on a glowing circle, and you’ll be transported to that spot in the home! Also be on the lookout for special items along the way, noted on each home’s page. Use your computer mouse or touch screen to zoom in. You can also use your arrow keys to move you through. Play around and have fun with it!  If you’re “stumped” this tutorial may help.

Each home has an accompanying write-up so you’ll know what to look for as you’re in the virtual tour. Again, if you’re not already a CHRS member, we’d appreciate your support!

Please enjoy!
