Dedicated to D.C.

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.
