Neighbor Caroline Petti’s popular walking tour of Brookland returns this Sunday, May 15th. From a community notice:

We’ll start at the Brooks Mansion (Metro parking lot side) 901 Newton Street NE at 1:00 PM. From there, we’ll traverse various neighborhood landmarks, old and new. I’ll share what I know of Brookland’s rich history as well as the issues of the day. The tour will last about 1 1/2 hours and will involve about two miles of walking.

This walking tour is sponsored by Knowledge Commons DC, a free “school” for thinkers, doers, and tinkerers. There’s no charge for the tour and registration opens on Saturday, May 7th.
