Starting Sunday, February 13 and continuing through the spring, we’re going to host weekend walking (and driving) excursions to locate remaining fallout shelter signs and, who knows, maybe even an intact shelter. Other trips will include a visit to a local house museum’s fallout shelter, local Cold War history events, and more. We’d also love to hear your ideas for other things we could do.
For our first group expedition, we will start in the U street area and work our way southwest towards Dupont Circle. Not only will you contribute to an interesting project, but you’ll discover new places in the city, learn some Cold War history, and hopefully make a few new friends! We’ve found this is a great excuse to explore corners of Washington we would never have visited otherwise.
WHAT: Fallout shelter hunt
WHERE: Collage Cafe @ 1346 T St. NW (closest metro is the U Street/African-Amer Civil War Memorial Station)
WHEN: Sunday, February 13 @ 12:30pm
WHO: Adam, Melissa, and you! Please invite anyone else you’d like.
We hope you can join us.
