Bus Tour – Arlington County – Sunday November 23, 2014

In the spirit of the DC Historical Studies conference theme, “historical consciousness in a changing city,” the tour of Arlington County will explore the historical layers of this important segment of the Washington metropolitan area. Originally part of the 100 square mile federal district, later occupied – and strategic — territory during the Civil War and, afterwards, site of contestations over how to remember that war, transformed in the twentieth century by military expansion and immigration, Arlingtonians continue today to debate development in a rapidly transforming urban and suburban landscape.
Sites featured include: Air Force Memorial, the Nauck neighborhood, the West Boundary Stone, Ball-Sellers House, Hume School (Arlington Historical Society), Arlington House within Arlington National Cemetery.
Limit: 40 persons
Cost: $40/person, advance registration
