Tour Guide



Discover the pivotal contributions of the women who have shaped and led our nation from the heart of our nation's capital.

This tour will delve into the often unexamined and unrecognized contributions of our First Ladies - from Dolley Madison and her vital role in preserving America’s early history to Eleanor Roosevelt's fight for civil rights to Jackie Kennedy and her preservation of the nation's capital. 

This tour will cover a one mile stretch of the National Mall and downtown D.C. and tell the story of women whose work are not recognized with physical monuments but is ingrained into the fabric of our city and our history.
