The Fall 2010 edition of WalkingTownDC is this upcoming weekend.

Rebuilding Mount Vernon Triangle
Sunday, September 26th, 9 – 10:30 am

Meet and end at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., 801 K Street, NW (south side entrance)

This is a not-to-miss tour of the small neighborhood just north of Chinatown. Discover the emerging Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood and hear about the history of this once forgotten area, including its rebirth with new retails, offices, and high-rise condos. This tour will include a walk past the remaining historic buildings, discussion about the social and economic forces that lead to its decline as well as its current revitalization. You will also have a chance to visit one of the new apartment buildings.

Presented by Cultural Tourism DC member organization Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District and led by Executive Director Bill McLeod
