Come to Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site on Saturday, October 6th for a Path Through History Weekend presentation, “Capturing Our Past: Visiting Washington’s Headquarters in the Mid-Late 19thCentury,” at 2:00 PM. Hear about Washington’s Headquarters’ early years. Listen to how and why it became the first publicly operated historic site in the nation on July 4, 1850. What was behind the motivation to save Washington’s Headquarters before so many other sites? Learn what it was like to visit the Site 130 years ago. Compare that period of time with today as you walk through rooms like the Washingtons once did.

Free with admission.
