100 Years in Foggy Bottom


2012 marked 100 years since the George Washington University relocated to the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. These decades have seen marked geographical, economic and social change for the school and neighborhood. Between February and October, 2012, The George Washington University planned a wide range of events, discussions, and get-togethers to celebrate our mutual growth and success.

Some of those events included George Washington's Birthday Bonfire, Foggy Bottom Historical Walking Tours, a GW Community Breakfast, Centennial Cherry Blossom Tree Commemoration, and the Foggy Bottom/West End Block Party just to name a few. For more information about the 100 years celebrations please visit the Events and Celebrations page for this special occasion as well as the GW and Foggy Bottom Historical Encyclopedia where you may browse through hundreds of years of history of the university, from its founding days, to its current state in the neighborhood and beyond.
