"Behind These Walls" Public History Exhibit Now Open

Category: 
Update: 

The "Behind These Walls" Exhibit is composed of eleven large historical photographs recently installed on the Washington Navy Yard's historic perimeter wall along 11th and M streets, SE. The selected photographs and text, provided by the Naval History and Heritage Command, highlight moments of both national and local importance that have occurred on the Washington Navy Yard, such as the Yard's pivotal role in the Civil War, as a testing site for military innovation and engagement with the surrounding community.

CSX is proud to have supported the project through the DC Preservation League’s Virginia Avenue Tunnel Fund. The goal of this fund is to support projects within the area surrounding the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project that preserve, restore, research, interpret or otherwise benefit historic resources within the project area.
