Office of Historic Alexandria – Alexander von Humboldt’s Visit to Washington in 1804 – Sunday, December 6, 2-3:30 pm
Join Dr. Sandra Rebok for a virtual lecture “Serendipity or Destiny? Alexander von Humboldt’s Visit to Washington in 1804,” co-sponsored by the Office of Historic Alexandria and the Alexandria Association. During the first days of June 1804, the Prussian explorer Alexander von Humboldt was a guest of President Jefferson in the White House, and took the opportunity to visit also Georgetown, Alexandria, and Mount Vernon. The visit also happened right after the Louisiana Purchase and the beginning of a series of exploration voyages into the West, when his expertise was of particular importance for the young nation. Tickets are $6, free for members of the Alexandria Association. The Alexandria Association is the city’s oldest organization devoted to the preservation of Alexandria’s historic buildings, landscapes, records, and antiquities.
