Learn the history of the Capitol, told by Historical Society

I serve as the Manager of Public Programs and organize our wonderful host of volunteers.

I have always been passionate about American History. It was always my favorite subject growing up and now I get to live in the city where so much of our history took place, and where new history is constantly being formed.

Washington, DC is an amazing city with so much to see and do. The US Capitol is the heart of our Democracy, the heart of what makes our country. I hope we can share with you just how wonderful and amazing this building is.

This was a great experience for my 16 year old son who loves history and architecture. He enjoyed all the stories and connecting with Steve.

My husband and I loved our tour with Steve and learned a lot about the Capitol area that we didn't know. Steve was funny and insightful and kind and really customized the tour for us. I think the only thing I would suggest that diverged from expectations, was that we thought it would include other buildings or sights, but this tour is really entirely about the Capitol building, with some information about buildings you can see while standing at the Capitol building (i.e., Library of Congress, SCOTUS). Nonetheless, we had a great time and learned a lot, which was exactly what we were hoping for :).

Sam gave us an excellent tour. His knowledge and passion for the subject of Washington history made it very special for our family, and it was well worth it to get a private tour with someone who does this all the time. It was a memorable experience for all of us. Thanks again Sam!
