Shotgun House Revisited


Dr. Ruth Trocolli, the district archaeologist at the DC Historic Preservation Office, is the featured speaker on Nov. 15, 6:30 p.m., at the Northeast Public Library, 330 Seventh St. NE, in the downstairs meeting room. Dr. Trocolli will present “The Shotgun House Revisited,” an update on the excavation of the site at 1229 E St. SE. This pre-civil war home is often referred to as “The Shotgun House” for its architectural style. In the months since the excavation, additional analysis has been performed on the recovered material and further research done on archival and oral history sources. Capitol Hill Restoration Society is hosting this free community presentation. All are welcome.
