The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. is temporarily closed. Events DC, manager of the Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square where the Historical Society is located, identified mold in two areas of the building. Events DC is working to remediate and continue further testing to ensure the building is safe. Our priority is to ensure the safety of our staff, the protection of our collections and ensure our previously scheduled events and activities can take place, as planned. We will provide information on our activities and events as soon as we are able to finalize details.
