Upcoming Seminars & Programs

June 19, 2020 7:30 PM On-line Program : Now Arriving Washington - Union Station and Life in the Nation's Capital Registration Link. Bill Wright will preview his new book describing how Washington’s grand terminal has been deeply connected to almost every aspect of life in the city – transportation, politics and government, urban design, economics, and social patterns — since its opening in 1907. Despite many changes in its operations, Union Station remains a building that reveals more about life in modern Washington than any other, simultaneously reflecting and shaping the development of the capital.
