About Us

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. is a community-supported educational and research organization, 501(c) (3) that collects, interprets, and shares the local history of our nation's capital in order to promote a sense of identity, place and pride, and to preserve this heritage for future generations. Founded in 1894, it serves a diverse audience from its new DC History Center, co-located with an Apple flagship store in the beautifully restored Carnegie Library at Mount Vernon Square. There the public has access to the Kiplinger Research Library, three exhibit galleries, and the DC History Center Store.

The Kiplinger Research Library’s extensive collections document more than 200 years of Washington history, and serve the interested public and school groups of all ages. The collections form the basis of public programs and workshops, such as teacher training, house histories, and graphic design inspirations, as well as the content of the exhibits. The Historical Society also publishes Washington History magazine, the only publication dedicated to new research in local history.
