Book Talk: "Lost Farms and Estates of Washington, D.C."

Kim Prothro Williams, author and national register coordinator, DC Historic Preservation Office

Washington, D.C., has a rural history of agrarian landscapes and country estates. In 1791, the area was selected as the capital of a new nation, and the change from rural to urban was both dramatic and progressive. Author Kim Prothro Williams reveals the rural remnants of Washington's past.
