The Society's Urban Photography Series includes guided photo tours of neighborhoods in each of the District's eight wards. The tour of Brightwood (Ward 4) was led by Pat Tyson.
PICTURED: The George M. Lightfoot Family Residence, 1329 Missouri Avenue NW. This house is one of the few remaining dwellings from the old African American community that predated Fort Stevens. It has been in the Lightfoot family for more than 90 years, ever since George M. Lightfoot (1868-1947) purchased the home around 1916.
