Synopsis: Georgetown, a thriving neighborhood in the nation’s capital, was established in 1751 as an independent city. As the land to its east was being developed into Washington, DC, the once sleepy river town grew and evolved. George Washington’s adopted descendants lived down the street from where Kennedy lived before Camelot; Julia Child walked past the home of Robert Todd Lincoln; and a successful community of free black Americans was built around the corner from what had previously been a slave market. Georgetown depicts the history of a community whose roots span far beyond the prestigious university and upper-class neighborhood for which it is known. The images capture mansions and slums, thriving businesses and crumbling facades, an industrial revolution, and the closing of the C&O Canal.

About the Author: Canden Schwantes is a historian and tour guide in Washington, DC, who considers Georgetown her specialty. Author of the books Wicked Georgetown and Wild Women of Washington, Schwantes runs Free Tours by Foot, an international walking-tour company. She also volunteers at the Historical Society of Washington, DC. Photographs for this book were found in the society’s Kiplinger Library as well as in the vast and various sources available in Washington, DC, especially the collections of the Library of Congress.
