Washington, DC experienced an unprecedented rise in prostitution during and after the Civil War. Learn about how Pennsylvania Avenue became DC’s most notorious red light district, from the ramshackle “boarding houses” of Murder Bay to glamorous pleasure houses such as Mary Ann Hall’s establishment that used to stand on the site of the current American Indian History Museum.
This tour takes you from the Willard Intercontinental and goes down Pennsylvania Avenue, which was the main thoroughfare along which DC’s red light district arose. Tour ends at the National Museum of the American Indian. There is a half-way stop at Hill Country BBQ for a bathroom break and refreshments.
