Ward Heritage Guides

The Historic Preservation Office (HPO) has been working with local communities to prepare a series of heritage guides for the District’s eight wards. Each illustrated guide describes the ward’s historical development, shows recognized historic properties, and identifies other sites that may be significant to local culture or valued by neighborhood residents. Potential strategies for increasing appreciation and protection of community heritage are also discussed.

Heritage Guides for five wards are now available as attachments below, and the remaining three are in progress. The projected completion date for the entire series is December 2017.
