About Us

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C., now doing business as the DC History Center, is a 501(c)3 community-supported educational and research organization. Founded in 1894, the DC History Center deepens understanding of our city's past to connect, empower, and inspire. As the only community-based nonprofit focused on the District’s history, our vision is to reach into all eight Wards to preserve and elevate the stories of Washington's diverse people, neighborhoods, and institutions.

The DC History Center is located in the historic Carnegie Library on Mt. Vernon Square in Washington, DC. It includes three galleries, a library, and a retail store.
