Mission Statement

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C., serves the city, its residents and visitors as an educational institution that promotes knowledge of the past for better understanding of the future

Description

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C., promotes understanding to the nation's capital as a city of crossroads where North and South, federal and local, urban and suburban, national and international, native and newcomer intersect, and where African American, white, Hispanic and Asian meet and become American.

The Historical Society is devoted to making the history of the Washington metropolitan area and its people accessible and understandable to public audiences in order to achieve a sense of identity, place and pride in Washington for those who live and work here and for the nation as a whole.

The Historical Society facilitates ongoing dialogue and better understanding about urban issues through educational programs, publications, research collections and exhibitions.
