How was LeDroit Park established and who built all those unique homes on U Street? Why did the neighborhood start as exclusively white but become important to black history?
Eric Fidler will answer these questions and many more during a Historic Walking Tour of LeDroit Park. The tour will be on Saturday, May 10 at 1 pm. Meet me at the arch at 6th Street and Florida Avenue NW. The tours are free and open to the public.
