The Streets Of Washington, D.C., With Jenna Huhn

As a recent arrival in the D.C. area, Jenna Huhn has had the opportunity to explore the rich architectural history of the nation’s capital. The city was established by a land grant from the states of Maryland and Virginia and incorporated the port cities of Alexandria and Georgetown. The original design of the streets was created by French-born civil engineer Pierre L’Enfant and was characterized by a north-south and east-west grid that was intersected regularly by grand avenues running diagonally through the new city. Washington, D.C., was burned by British troops during the War of 1812 but was rebuilt along its historic lines during the period following the war.
