Tours of Capitol Hill Begin in April

Posted March 28, 2003 at 3:12pm

As part of the DC Heritage Tourism Coalition’s kickoff of its 2003 tour season, the group will offer an updated version of “Capital Neighbors: A Walk About Capitol Hill.”

The two-hour walk has been expanded to include the Barracks Row neighborhood along Eighth Street Southeast. An added focus will also be placed on the architecture of the area, such as that of the Gothic revival Christ Episcopal Church, said Carole Kolker, the coalition’s tour program historian.

The guided tour — which costs $12 — is held at 1 p.m. the second and fourth Saturday of each month from April through October. The tour meets at the Eastern Market metro station at Seventh Street and Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast.
