The U.S. Capitol Historical Society’s founder, a history teacher and congressman, believed that 'to be a good citizen, you've got to know your history.' Now, half a century later, USCHS is celebrating its 50th anniversary as the leading public resource on the history of the Capitol and our representative democracy. As an independent 501(c)(3) organization, we promote historical literacy and knowledgeable citizenship through broad public programming. Are you an avid history lover? Do you live and breathe all things Capitol Hill? Maybe you just love meeting new people and having a great time. If so, this is the group for you! We will be hosting several events in the DC area and would love to see YOU there!
