Gilded Age Mansions of Dupont Circle
Around the turn of the 20th century, the Dupont Circle area was transformed from an outpost of the federal city to the preserve of the wealthy, who built immense mansions in a variety of ornate styles. In his talk, Ralph Buglass will draw on vintage photos to tell stories of these extravagant residences--most of them surviving today for other purposes--and the equally flamboyant characters who once lived in them--though often just part of the year.
Ralph Buglass teaches lifelong learning courses at American University, Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery College, and Frederick Community College. Ralph is a frequent speaker for Montgomery History on a variety of local history topics. He also is a volunteer researcher for Peerless Rockville, the non-profit historic preservation organization for Montgomery County’s seat of government.
