Washington's movers and shakers once strolled the streets of Dupont Circle, where Massachusetts Avenue was the city's premier residential address. Heiresses, industrial magnates, newspaper tycoons and political elites built opulent mansions along the avenue, all to impress Washington society. After the Great Depression, many of these magnificent mansions were converted into embassies, social clubs, and offices. Hear the stories of the Capital's gilded elite and learn about the history of Washington's premier promenade. Highlights include:

  • Dupont Circle
  • Embassy of Indonesia (Walsh-McLean House)
  • Alice's Palace
  • Society of the Cincinnati (Anderson Mansion)
  • Turkish Ambassador's Residence
  • The Hobbit House
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt House
