The Dupont Circle Citizens Association will hold its 50th annual house tour on Sunday, Oct. 15, from noon to 5 p.m.

This year’s tour will focus on the 16th Street Historic District’s varied architectural styles, which range from three- and four-story row houses and apartment buildings to embassies, institutional buildings and churches.

“The imaginative, varied facades of these buildings create a rhythmic streetscape and a continuous visual experience seldom so well preserved in the District of Columbia,” the association’s announcement says.

The tour will include an afternoon tea from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Temple of the Scottish Rite, designed by John Russell Pope and built from 1911 to 1915.

Tickets cost $40 and are available at
