As the nation's capital, Washington, DC is known primarily as a city of grand memorials to national leaders and significant events. But aren't the lives of DC's "regular" citizens and "regular" buildings significant too? The oldest building in DC, Old Stone House commemorates the daily lives of Georgetown's early residents. The house serves as a great example of Revolutionary War-era architecture.

Before Dr. Carter G. Woodson, there was very little accurate written history about the lives and experiences of Americans of African descent. Today a National Historic Site, Dr. Woodson's home served as the headquarters for the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Dr. Woodson established Negro History Week here in 1926, which we celebrate today as Black History Month.
