Humanities DC is proud to present the House History Day research workshops, hosted by the Library of Congress, and with the support of our partners at the D.C. Office of Historic Preservation, D.C. Public Library Special Collections Division, and the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Workshops are open to everyone with an interest in local history, from burgeoning enthusiasts to community historians. A Library of Congress Reader Card with photo is required. The workshops help researchers of any skill level understand and navigate public resources in D.C. Participants learn how to research the history of their home or any other historic property through sessions on D.C. maps, photo archives, D.C. directories, and online databases. This event will be held at the Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave., SE, on Aug. 5 from 10 a.m. to noon. Admission is free. To register for tickets, visit
