About the Event
HISTORIC WALKING TOUR
Join DC by Foot as we explore Eastern Market and what makes this neighborhood unique. The stories and architecture of the buildings and homes surrounding one of the city's original markets including hidden statues and lost wine cellars. Learn about the original main street that carried government officials from the river to the Capitol and explore why this area was suppose to be DC's downtown. Instead, it developed into a tree-lined residential neighborhood, home to independent women and fascinating figures in US history whose lives centered around Eastern Market.
ABOUT MARKET WEEK
