Adolph Cluss Walking Tour of Penn Quarter
Architecture Walking Tour in Penn Quarter: The Designs of Adolph Cluss
German immigrant Adolf Cluss is one of the most important architects in the history of Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, very few Cluss-designed buildings remain standing today. On this two-hour tour, you'll visit Penn Quarter, a neighborhood that maintains four impressive structures designed by Cluss: the former Center Market, Old Masonic Hall, Calvary Baptist Church, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. At the museum, you'll go inside to discover the stunning interior designed by Cluss and restored by Hartman-Cox Architects. This is your chance to see some of the few remaining works of the architect The New York Times
said did "more than anyone else to foster an improved style of private architecture in the nation's capital."
