Riding Through the Past: New Metrobus Tours on DC Historic Sites
February 24, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Join the DC Preservation League on Wednesday, February 24th at Noon for a presentation and discussion about Riding Through the Past– a series of new bus tours on the DC Historic Sites mobile app and website.
In 1976, Don’t Tear It Down (DTID) published a series of brochures on various public bus routes across the nation’s capital, titled “Take One Tour.” They aimed to make riders aware of the historic sites along their bus route. Today, the DC Preservation League continues its predecessor’s work with a series of digital tours offered on the organization’s mobile app. These tours take inspiration from “Take One Tour” and encourage present-day Washingtonians to explore the history of DC’s built environment on their everyday commute.
Led by DCPL Staff, this program will explore the inspiration for Riding Through the Past and the process of creating this series. The presentation will also include a closer look at one of the tours and end with time for Q&A.
This event is free & open to the public. It will also be streamed live to DCPL’s Facebook page.
