Tour Mt. Pleasant Library, Old & New, on Sat., Nov. 5

DC Preservation League is putting on a  tour of the historic Mount Pleasant Library. Led by project architects Dale Stewart and Dean Hutchenson of CORE, the construction tour will highlight the renovation of this important historic resource and the incorporation of new construction on the site.

Designed to harmonize with the monumental architecture along 16th Street, the library is a contributing resource within the Mount Pleasant Historic District.
