Through our historical tours of DC, we here at DC by Foot have always worked to add to the cultural and historical energy of this city. In addition to making the city’s history available to visitors and locals alike through our tours, we have also given back over the years with charity tours. Now we are pleased to announce a new initiative whereby every year we will be in giving a portion of the proceeds from all of our public tours to the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. as they collect, share and interpret the history of our nation’s capital.
This year, we are proud to be a co-sponsor of the new exhibit at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. titled: reVISON which opens to the public on September 22nd, 2015. This exhibition focuses on five mixed-use projects currently in some phase of construction. The exhibition examines the theories and context behind each project’s design as well as the complexity inherent in projects of such vision and scope.
Partnering with an organization like the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., whose goals of making history accessible to all and telling the stories of the past in creative ways, is a natural fit for us. We have also committed to strengthening our relationship with the Society by continuing to volunteer our time and expertise with them. So next time you join us for a pay-what-you like tour, know that you too are helping contribute to the life and culture of DC.
