The Final List

So here's our final list of (mostly) chronological DC field trips.  35 field trips in 8 months.  We did a good job and learned so much.

We also read Empire of Mud and Washington: A History of Our National City which is the most boring title ever for a very interesting book.

My son is also writing a final research paper about the impact of redevelopment, displacement, and property rights in DC with a focus on Southwest DC and the currently proposed Barry Farm redevelopment.
