Join us on Tuesday, March 13th at 6 pm for…

An after-hours tour of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial Library!

— LIMITED TO THE FIRST 30 RSVPS —

Led by the Director of the Museum and Library Collections Mark Tabbert, the WRBG is invited for a short general tour of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial before embarking on a behind-the-scenes tour of the memorial’s private library and collection storage. Built over a period of about 10 years from 1923 to 1932 to “create a suitable Memorial Temple to George Washington, the Mason,” the collections contain historic material associated not only with Washington but other members of the fraternity closely intertwined with the history of this nation. RSVP to baxterw@si.edu for what is sure to be an evening of learning and discovery!

We’ll walk to a nearby restaurant afterwards for a casual dinner, location forthcoming. Please let us know if you can join! We’ll be making a reservation for the group.

William E. Baxter
President, Washington Rare Book Group
