About This Site

DC History Digital Collections currently contains approximately 900 items from the public collections of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. The current site was made possible with the support of a grant from The Greater Washington Community Foundation to initiate the digitization of the Society's vast collections and make them available in a meaningful, appealing way to the general public. As we continue to grow our digital collections, this space will expand and provide more opportunities to interact with the rich history in our archives.
