Did you know that perhaps the most important vineyard in the history of the United States was located on the Springland Farm, centered at Reno/Tilden/Springland Lane?
Did you know that the vintner – John Adlum – is called the Father of American viticulture?
Founded more than 200 years ago, Springland Farm would become the National Bureau of Standards, the International Chancery Center, UDC and the present Springland Farm community.
Join Chuck Ludlam, local historian and founder and leader of the Springland Farm community, for a walking tour on Saturday, September 16th from 9 to 11 a.m.
The tour is sponsored by Cultural Tourism DC and it is free. However, space is limited and you have to register here (scroll past the walking tour calendar). Part of the tour is on a bumpy 33-foot trail, which is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.
It’s a fascinating history. Carin Ruff of the Cleveland Park Historical Society wrote about Springland Farm in 2013.
