EVENT: Bloomingdale To Be Featured In 10/25/2005 Wardman Rowhouse Lecture

"Celebrating a Century of Wardman Rowhouse Neighborhoods"

Co-sponsored by the DC Preservation League

Historians Sally Lichtenstein Berk and Caroline Mesrobian Hickman will talk about this exhibit (opening at the John A. Wilson Building, 1250 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Thursday, September 22, 2005), which will feature three rowhouse neighborhoods that were built along major streetcar lines in the early years of the 20th century; Bloomingdale, Brightwood and Columbia Heights. These neighborhoods have undergone several demographic changes in the approximate 100 years since their construction and are now experiencing -- or are about to experience -- revitalization as the move to the city continues apace and urban housing is at a premium. The talk will include a map of Wardman's oerve complet.

Cost: $5 DCPL/HSW members; $10 nonmembers
