Cultural Tourism DC has worked to make sure Washington residents know that history is all around us, not just on the National Mall.

In 2006 the organization started marking the places where the rich local history of African American citizens had taken place. Now they have reached a milestone with the 100th marker on what is called the African American Heritage Trail.
