Join us for a special 90-minute walking tour of Washington’s second oldest village. Sign up for the free tour here; space is limited.
Tenleytown’s development from a village to a thriving in-town suburb was influenced by a variety of individuals, families, and institutions, including Italian stone cutters, a German beer baron, and an order of nuns with roots in France. Join us on this tour to learn about some well known (and not so well known) local architects, developers, and property owners who shaped the face of Tenleytown as we know it. The tour will focus on the west side of Wisconsin Ave. and depart from the Tenleytown library.
Tenleytown Main Street is proud to offer this walking tour in partnership with the Tenleytown Historical Society (THS) as part of this year’s Tenley WinterFest. Farleigh Earhart, a THS board member, Janney parent, and frequent patron of the library’s Washingtoniana Room, will conduct the tour.
What are my transportation/parking options getting to the event?
The walking tour will begin and end at the Tenley-Friendship Neighborhood Library, which is conveniently located across from the Tenleytown/AU Metro station. Participants are encouraged to use Metro; however, limited parking is available at the library and on Wisconsin Avenue.
What should I bring with me?
Please wear comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing. Walkers are also encouraged to bring a bottle of water with them.
