Lonely Planet review

As of mid-2012, the Historical Society was closed until further notice. Keep an eye on it though. Plans are to re-open, and if it does, it’s a great place to learn about DC as a living, breathing city of neighborhoods, immigrants and working lives outside of the Federal scene. The extensive library of books, photographs, maps and other archives is a treasure. Staff are a trove of knowledge and opinions on the current state of DC. It’s located in the Carnegie Library building at Mount Vernon Sq.
