~COLLECTIONS

~COMMEMORATIONS

  • MONTROSE AND DUMBARTON OAKS PARKS  Take a self-guided walking tour of Montrose Park in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. The park celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. I am now working with the Dumbarton Oaks Conservancy to create a similar tour for Dumbarton Oaks Park next door.   
  • THE WAR OF 1812 IN THE CHESAPEAKE  HPI acted as liaison between Cultural Tourism DC and historic sites around the region to plan the DC, MD and VA events commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 in the Chesapeake in 2014 as well as between Cultural Tourism DC and the National Park Service to install a driving route and interpretive trail with waysides through DC and VA telling the story of the British invasion.   
  • THE CIVIL WAR IN WASHINGTON  HPI created self-guided mobile tours of Fort Stevens and Battleground National Cemetery in Northwest Washington, DC, the site of the only civil war skirmish in the nation's capital. July 2014 marked the 150th Anniversary of the battle and of the creation of the final resting place for those that fell.     

~DC TOURS
