About the Making D.C. History Awards

Each year, the Historical Society recognizes local individuals, families, and organizations whose enduring contributions to our community help create, define, and preserve our city’s heritage. Started in 2012 as the Legacy Families of Washington, past recipients created new award categories to recognize the important contributions of D.C.’s local businesses, civic leaders, community members, non-profits, and historians. The awards are the Historical Society’s premier event that helps raise funds to support its important mission.
