What did life look like for Washington’s 19th-century residents? Much like today, D.C. residents studied at universities, worked for government agencies, and enjoyed concerts, museums and national ceremonies unique to the capital city. Historical newspaper illustrations and other artifacts in this exhibition capture daily scenes of labor and leisure.

This exhibition is organized by the Albert H. Small Center for National Capital Area Studies with support from the Albert and Shirley Small Family Foundation.

This exhibition is available through July 20, 2024.
