Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868, but the barbecues and  traffic jams came much later!  Now considered the start to summer, Memorial Day’s original meaning – honoring and memorializing fallen soldiers – can sometimes get lost among the holiday sales, pool parties and grill lighting. In the D.C. area, there are many ways both to remember the origins of the holiday and have fun. Here are some events to pick from that show why Washington DC is such a special place.

Like many areas of Washington, Dupont Circle has had more than one life.  It began in 1821 as Pacific Circle but changed to Dupont Circle in 1884 when a bronze statue was erected to Rear Admiral Samuel Francis duPont in recognition of his Civil War service. That statue was replaced in 1921 by a double-tiered white marble fountain, designed by sculptor Daniel Chester French and architect Henry Bacon. Three classical figures, symbolizing the Sea, the Stars and the Wind are carved on the fountain's central shaft.  This is the statue that you see in the background of all the events that take … (10 comments)

When prospective buyers come to look at a house, the first thing they notice is its curb appeal. A house with a well-maintained yard makes a positive initial impression, but one that’s been neglected can make people instantly decide to pass. Buyers will think that if the owners didn’t take care of the landscaping, they probably also neglected important maintenance inside the house. Before you put your home on the market, take some time to clean up the yard so that you can quickly attract a buyer.

Some say it’s a seller’s market. In many areas, homes are being snapped up before the lawn sign goes into the ground. So why has your home been languishing on the market without a serious taker?
