The Carnegie Library started its new life Thursday as the City Museum, dedicated to telling the story of the many communities and people that comprise the District of Columbia. A project of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., the museum houses historical maps and artifacts from the city’s past. The museum, at 801 K St. NW in Mount Vernon Square, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
