The location was rich in history and the tour was a nice touch. The wine and snacks tasted great and I met a lot of very nice people. Very well done!

Hill Center has become a bustling hub of activity in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, attracting multitudes of visitors each week to attend everything from documentary film screenings, concerts and educational classes.
