The CHRS and the RCA are sponsoring a presentation on historic buildings by EHT Traceries, a well-known architectural history firm.
This presentation will describe the development history of the area approximately bounded by H Street/Benning Road (north); East Capitol Street (south); 15th Street (west); and 19th Street (east). Rosedale, which lies within these boundaries, is a distinctive neighborhood that developed over the late 19th and early 20th centuries, just a stone’s throw from the H Street commercial corridor Find out who developed the neighborhood and learn about the different types of architecture and buildings from knowledgeable architectural historians.
This event is free, open to the public and brought to you in part by the CHRS “Beyond the Boundaries” program, which seeks to promote the appreciation of neighborhood history and support historic preservation efforts outside the boundaries of the Capitol Hill Historic District.
