H Street, NE History Project

We are seeking input from individuals in the community to develop a time line and tapestry of influential people, places, businesses and events in and around H Street Northeast. We are also in need of volunteers- writers, researchers, interviewers, photographers, and you!

Join us on Saturday, November 7 from 11:00 AM -12:30 PM in Room A-5 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, 901 G Street NW, (Gallery Place Metro) for an informational session about the project and how you can get involved.

H Street Northeast is one of the fastest developing commercial corridors in the District of Columbia. This project seeks to acknowledge the legacy and heritage of a community undergoing urban renewal and capture the stories behind the cultural and historical assets of the one-and-a-half mile commercial corridor, giving the street many of it’s unique character and traditions from the 1900’s and beyond.

For additional information about sponsorship and other details, please contact T. Isler at (202) 250-0466 or harvestpotluck@gmail.com

This project is sponsored in part by H Street Main Street, the DC Humanities Council and the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
