If DC’s historical facts and secrets fascinate you, then be sure to attend one of George Kassouf’s free walking tours, “The Geometry of DC: Walking the Historical Circles, Squares and Triangles of Downtown DC.” They are part of Cultural Tourism DC’s WalkingTown/BikingTown tours.

Kassouf will lead a group on a four-mile, leisurely walk through the District and highlight a myriad of the District’s well-kept secrets, like which square once provided fresh spring water to the White House and nearby government buildings,where Andrew Jackson planted an American Elm tree and where Alexander Graham Bell once lived.

The tours will take place on Friday, September 28 from 6 until 9 pm and on Sunday, September 30 from 8:30 until 11:30 am. Both historical tours are outdoors and are dog and stroller-friendly. The tour group will meet on the steps of the National City Christian Church (5 Thomas Circle NW) and end at Logan Circle (at the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue NW, Vermont Avenue NW, 13th Street NW and P Street NW).

To register for the tours, visit the event’s page on the Cultural Tourism website; for more information, contact George Kassouf at [email protected]
