River Park - townhomes
As part of its DC Modern program, the D.C. Preservation League will be holding a walking tour of Southwest D.C. on Oct. 22 with local architect Dean Hutchison. Here’s from the DCPL:  “This neighborhood boasts the greatest concentration of mid-century resources in the city. We’ll be visiting many of the buildings and landscapes that transformed this area nearly 50 years ago, and learning about the designers and architects behind the grand vision. The tour will include Capitol Park, River Park (pictured above), Tiber Island, and Harbor Square.” Meeting location is the southwest corner of 4th and I Street, SW. Starts at 10 a.m. and runs to noon.
