Historic Capital shows how Washington, D.C.'s historic buildings and neighborhoods have been a site of contestation between local interests and the expansion of the federal government's footprint. It ultimately makes the case that historic preservation has had as great an impact on the physical fabric of U.S. cities as any other private or public sector initiative in the twentieth century.
