Get a free history tour of LeDroit Park on Sept. 30

How was LeDroit Park established and who built all those unique homes on U Street? Why did the neighborhood start as exclusively white but become so important to black history? As part of the annual WalkingTown DC event, I will lead two free walking tours of the neighborhood.

The tours will be on Sunday, September 30 at 1 pm and again at 3:30 pm. Meet me at the arch at 6th Street and Florida Avenue NW.  The tours are free and open to the public.

We’ll cover

  1. Sounds great! I hope I can make one of the tours.

    I have enjoyed many WalkingTownDC tours in the past, but the list on their web site is especially difficult to read this year. Glad your tour does not require a reservation!

  2. Hi!

    I was unable to make the Ledroit Park walking tour, any chance another will take place sometime soon?
