About the Event
Join historian Tom Heuser and photographer Lana Blinderman for a walking tour of Capitol Hill’s most exceptional Mid-Century Modern apartments built between 1948 and 1970. The tour will explore the people who designed, built, and lived in these buildings, why these buildings are exceptional, both architecturally and historically, and why documenting them is important. You’ll also have the rare opportunity to walk through the verdant courtyard of Camellia Manor and the unique skylight-atrium inside the Cirque Apartments.
The tour will start outside the Ramayana at 119 Harvard Ave E and end with a social gathering outside Analog Coffee (weather permitting) for additional questions and discussion.
