September 19, 2017 Walking Tour

In lieu of our regular September 2017 monthly meeting, MHNA sponsored a walking tour of a portion of the Meridian Hill Historical District. Kim Williams, architectural historian, led the tour and provided fascinating historical context, including about Mary Foote Henderson and her controversial role in establishing the existing park, and the various embassy and other buildings up 16th St.
Following the tour, we walked to Pizzeria Vetri on 14th and Florida, to continue the various discussions. Pizzeria Vetri graciously provided space and several delicious pizzas.
