Tenleytown Heritage Trail

The Tenleytown Heritage Trail was launched in November 2011.

It is a self-guided three mile walk, including nineteenth century estates, the highest natural elevation in the District of Columbia, and Fort Reno, part of the ring of forts built to protect the capital during the Civil War.

The signs provide photographs and reminiscences. Brochures are available at the Tenley Friendship Library (corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Albemarle Street) and Middle C Music (corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Brandywine.)

The Tenleytown Heritage Trail is a project of Cultural Tourism DC in collaboration with the District Department of Transportation.

Tenleytown Historical Society and Tenleytown Neighbors Association are cosponsors of the Trail with Cultural Tourism DC.

The Tenleytown Heritage Trail Working Group comprised of members of these organizations and the wider community planned the trail.
