Extended Exhibit: Suffrage Outside!
Already marked your ballot and looking for an E-Day activity to keep you occupied? We've got the solution! Take a stroll through the outdoor self-guided Suffrage Exhibit at the historic Woodrow Wilson House. The exhibit was recently extended and the garden provides a wonderful venue to take a thoughtful socially distant walk through history...and consider the many ways it repeats itself.

Admission is pay what you wish. Entries are staggered and registration for timed entry is required. Patrons will enter through an open-air garage and climb one flight of stairs before entering the garden exhibit. Those requiring handicap access should call or email for information on accommodation.
Happy Halloween from our Neighborhood Queens!
In lieu of the live event we hope you had a chance to tune into the The Best of the High Heel Retrospective" for those who missed the livestream, click here to watch the video.

Here's hoping we can all meet at the finish line next year!

DCCA Presents 1st Featured Home House Tour Alternative for 2020
The pandemic has impacted almost every aspect of our lives. We hope you and your family are healthy and are managing through this crisis as well as can be expected.
Under the circumstances, the Dupont Circle Citizens Association will be unable to hold its beloved House Tour. While COVID-19 prevents us from offering our annual event, we are determined to continue to celebrate the rich history, architectural and otherwise, of Dupont Circle. Thus, we will be highlighting significant houses in our neighborhood on a monthly basis via our website and bi-weekly eblast. Some of these houses may be well known to you. Others you may have passed by numerous times without realizing the history or stories associated with these buildings. Hopefully these regular monthly features will inspire you to take a walk through our wonderful neighborhood and see these homes through a new lens. You will note that many of the homes featured this year highlight the significant African American history of our neighborhood. We hope you will agree that this is the best way to continue our House Tour tradition during these unusual times.
