The Built by Women DC exhibit (BxW DC) will be on display for a special weekend public viewing April 24-25, 2021 in an outdoor pavilion on the grounds of the Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum (JPPM) in Leonard, Maryland. The juried exhibit showcases 30 outstanding sites in the Washington D.C. metropolitan region, including Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia, where women were directly responsible for leading the design or construction of the project.

On Saturday, from 11:00pm-12:00noon women design professionals will be on hand to answer questions on the exhibit and some of the projects. Starting at 12noon and 1:00pm there will be guided tours of the park grounds, which is one of four projects in the exhibit that merited historical recognition. JPPM was once the Jefferson Patterson Estate at Point Farm, designed by Gertrude Sawyer, AIA (1895-1996). For over a 40-year period, starting in 1932, she designed or renovated over 26 farm or residential buildings on the property. The entire property is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Come celebrate the achievement of women in the fields of architecture and construction and enjoy a Spring day in the park with its 560 scenic acres of trails and vistas along the Patuxent River.
