    10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Creating Capitol Hill Walking Tour
    The U.S. Capitol Historical Society invites you to explore the history of Capitol Hill. Discover how hundreds of acres of wooded farmland became not just the seat of our federal government, but a vibrant and varied community. From the inspiring to the colorful, Capitol Hill has been home to countless great stories--and our guides are excited to share some of them with you! Based on USCHS's recently-published book, Creating Capitol Hill, the tour will be of interest to visitors and native Washingtonians alike.

    This tour will last approximately 90 minutes, and will be offered rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes, and please bring any items you need for your personal comfort (drinking water, umbrella, sunscreen, appropriate outerwear, etc.). Tours will depart promptly from the entrance of the Capitol Visitor Center.
