Alexandria, VA

The ambitious Encyclopedia Virginia, a project that aims to catalog and document the state’s history in a way that’s accessible to the general public, has featured four local sites on its catalog of historic spots with virtual tours.

Each of the locations have interior views with 360 degree views and the ability to move around as one would on Google Maps.

The locations are:

The Carlyle House recently resumed its tours, though group sizes are still limited to five guests, with face masks required. The Athenaeum is also open with limited capacity.

According to the project’s website:

Encyclopedia Virginia anthologizes the best and most current scholarship that exists on a given topic. In particular, our sections on Virginia Indians and the African American experience in Virginia are of a depth and breadth that is unavailable elsewhere on the web.
