CHRS & RCA Rosedale Neighborhood Historical Walking–tour

Why: Provide the Rosedale community the opportunity to learn about Rosedale related historical interests, such as: historical social, cultural and architectural interests/events/people/places

What: A guided historical walking-tour through a designated area of the Rosedale community; a pamphlet of information is usually included.

Where: Area bounded by Benning Rd, E Street, 15th and 17th Streets. Based on preliminary research, Beth and Donna believe this to be the oldest developed area of Rosedale. (this area is just west of the Rosedale Recreation Center)

When: Tentatively scheduled for Saturday May 30, 2009 from 11AM - 1PM, this falls within CHRS's Historical Preservation Month campaign

Who: CHRS, RCA and volunteers from Rosedale/Kingman Park neighborhoods to help organize, advertise, set-up/tear-down, be tour-guides and contribute neighborhood information for the tour-script (developed by CHRS).
