Learn about District of Columbia's important and irreplaceable historic places and spaces by exploring the new free app - DC Historic Sites. DC Historic Sites is based on the DC Inventory of Historic Sites, the city's official list of properties deemed worthy of recognition and protection for their contribution to the cultural heritage of the nation’s capital.
DC Historic Sites was developed by the DC Preservation League, Washington's citywide nonprofit advocate solely dedicated to the preservation, protection, and enhancement of the historic resources of our nation's capital.
Please note that this app is a work in progress. Additional sites and images will be uploaded. Please check back to the site often to see what is new. If you have pictures to submit, please do so at historicsites[at]dcpreservation.org
