Walking Tours of Yesteryear

In its early days Historic Chevy Chase DC organized in-house tours (1992) and a wide variety of walking tours including several alley tours (2000).  The two guides linked here describe those tours.  Keep in mind that these are dated materials.  The owners mentioned may not be the current owners, and indeed several landmarks may well have changed since these guides were published.  The 1992 tours included tours in people's homes; that is not a liberty that we suggest extended beyond the day of the tour. Nonetheless, these booklets represent an immense amount of work by volunteer members of HCCDC and include important information about the history and architecture of the Chevy Chase DC neighborhood.  So, enjoy these virtual tours, and if you do take one of the guides  in hand to walk the routes described, do remember that these are tours that are historical themselves – twenty and 12 years old respectively.
