Neighborhood Heritage Trails

In October 2013, Dana Ellyn began her newest painting project. She is using the Cultural Tourism DC Neighborhood Heritage Trail guides to inspire a new series of paintings. 

Ellyn will create a painting for each stop on the trails, creating a visual history of Washington’s most fascinating moments.

from each of the Heritage Trails.

There are 17 Neighborhood Heritage Trails in Washington DC. Dana Ellyn is working toward creating a painting for each stop on every trail. She will post them here as they are completed. 

With an average of 15 to 20 stops on each trail, this series will eventually total over 300 paintings. 

Please check back often to see the newest paintings and learn a new bit of DC history with each visit!
