How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was a great tour. We covered Massachusetts Avenue between Dupont & Sheridan Circles, and ended at the Anderson House (Society of the Cincinnati). Long before it was Embassy Row, this was "society row." We learned a bit about architectural styles and eras, but most importantly we learned about the people who built these amazing houses and the powerful women who ruled this world. The tour ended INSIDE the Anderson House, where you can opt for the docent-led tour of the Anderson House. I did, and that was well worth the time, too. If you're interested in the social history of Washington, and especially the 1890-1930 era, you'll love this tour! --BK
