Exploring House History in the Time of COVID

One-story row homes on Warren Street, NE

Join in Wednesday as architectural archivist and Hill resident Maygene Daniels presents a virtual Preservation Cafe, “Exploring House History in the Time of COVID.”

The essence of our historic Capitol Hill neighborhood lies in the combined stories of its contributing buildings, from homes to stores, churches, schools and more.

Even though COVID has closed archives, libraries and government offices, essential, rich web resources are still  readily available for study of these structures.

600 block East Capitol St. NE

Join CHRS on Wednesday, February 17, at 6:30 p.m. for the next virtual Preservation Cafe to learn how to use these free on-line sources to explore the history of your own house and our Capitol Hill neighborhood. You will discover that a wealth of resources is readily available to study and understand  the history of your house and your block and its development over time. You also will be introduced to the importance of the L’Enfant street grid and early building regulations as these have shaped our neighborhood.

Daniels is an architectural archivist who has worked with DC historical materials throughout her career.
