Celebrate Labor Day 2024 with the Greenbelt Museum!

Bricks and Blocks Walking Tour 

Saturday, August 31, 2024
10B Crescent Rd. 

Pre-registration required via Eventbrite

This tour will highlight historic Greenbelt's domestic architecture, the "brick and block" homes that make up the majority of the original planned community. Your guide will show you how to "read" the brick and block homes, and will feature spots of historic interest that have not been featured on previous walking tours.

The "Bricks and Blocks" Tour leaves from the Greenbelt Museum at 10-B Crescent Rd. and takes approximately 2 hours, including the Greenbelt Museum's orientation film. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to visit the interior of the Greenbelt Museum's historic home after the walking tour. 

As the tour involves walking outdoors, please dress accordingly. Space is limited to 12 participants. Walking tours are not conducted in thunder/lightning or snow storms or if the temperature is below 32 degrees or above 95 degrees.

Please note: in the event of inclement weather, the tour will be cancelled and you will be notified via Eventbrite.
