Produced in 1957 by Guided Tour Productions, this 12-minute guided tour of Washington, D.C., highlights the White House, the Washington Monument, the Smithsonian museums, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Monticello, Richmond, and Williamsburg, Virginia.

We find it absolutely fascinating to see what's changed in six decades—and what hasn't!
