The GTMS 2021 CALENDAR TOUR

The GTMS 2021 Calendar celebrates Old Town Alexandria and Gadsby’s Tavern Museum Society’s place in it. Many of the calendar’s months highlight interesting sites, which you can see on a gentle walking tour around Old Town. The GTMS Calendar Walking Tour appears on the inside back cover of the calendar.

On your walk between the calendar sites, you will see many pleasant homes and other historic buildings, some of which are mentioned in our Along the Way
 hints. Most of the calendar sites are museums that are open to the public. A printable version of an enlarged map and walking directions is available here. Enjoy!
