Tour Meridian Hill Park with the National Park Service
Hosted by the Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter
Join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter and guides from the National Parks Service for a springtime tour of Meridian Hill Park. Located on the longitude of the original district milestone marker, the park was first a site of a private mansion, then later retirement home for John Quincy Adams. After later being converted to national parkland, George Burnap and Horace Peaslee created the garden’s Italian style and were among the first to use concrete aggregate for much of the park’s hardscape. With thirteen basins, the park’s cascading water element is the largest in the North America.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
