America’s most famous avenue, connecting the White House and U.S. Capitol, hasn’t always been a grand thoroughfare. Pennsylvania Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood have been renovated, re-imagined, and revitalized over and over again. From Murder Bay, a center of crime, gambling, and prostitution to the stately boulevard of presidential inaugurations, presenter Carolyn Muraskin unfolds the story of a metamorphosis along America’s Main Street.

Highlights include the White House; the Eisenhower Executive Office Building; Blair House; Federal Triangle; the Willard Hotel; the Old Post Office Tower; the J. Edgar Hoover Building; the U.S. Navy Memorial; the National Archives; and the Temperance Fountain.

Muraskin is the founder of DC Design Tours, which offers historical tours of Washington focused on architecture, urban planning, and design.

Additional Program Opportunity on Zoom: Carolyn Muraskin will also be part of a program called From Millionaires Row to Embassy Row: Massachusetts Avenue in the Gilded Age on July 18, 2023 to share more Washington, DC history.
