Historic Southwest

Clip: Season 2006 | 2m 29s

Years ago, the neighborhood of Southwest was known as "the island" because the Washington Canal cut it off from the rest of the city. This "island" has seen enormous change and development over the years. Join us on a walking tour that will take us to the oldest row houses in Washington and to a waterfront area on the brink of redevelopment.
