44th Annual Dupont Circle House Tour Announced for Sunday, October 16

This year’s Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) house tour follows a meandering route through 12-block area just east and north of Dupont Circle, and provides access to over a dozen wonderful sites, including many turn-of-the-19th century town homes, a two-story condominium, and visits inside the International Student House and the Woman’s NationalDemocratic Club at New Hampshire Avenue and Q Street, NW, which will also be the site of  the traditional tea between 2 and 5 p.m.

In addition to the opportunity to view wonderful homes, the tour will also feature musical performances at many of the sites. A variety of volunteers have generously agreed to showcase their music, creating a wonderfully cultured ambiance as you tour the homes. A sample of the performers you will hear includes classical flutists, contemporary piano soloist, jazz trio, and classical string quartet.

The house tour is DCCA’s major fund-raising event of the year, with proceeds going toward neighborhood activities and charitable contributions to benefit the entire Dupont Circle community, including Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, Clean Teams for Dupont Circle Park, Ross Elementary School, Charlie’s Place, Whitman Walker Health, Art-on Call, and the 17th Street Arts Festival.

Established in 1922, the association has presented the house tour every year since 1968. DCCA members work together in an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the interests of the 14,000 residents of Dupont Circle. First settled 125 years ago, the neighborhood contains major residential areas, foreign embassies, renowned museums.
