Learn how to dig out the stories that are buried in your house – or any other distinctive building you’ve had your eye on.
Barbara Bates, a historian who focuses on the residential architecture in Forest Hills (and told us about the history of the “Space age crystal palace” and the Chevy Chase Ice Palace at Van Ness Square) highly recommends the DC Community Heritage Project House History Workshop.
Barbara advises you to register for the April 18th workshop as quickly as possible. The workshops fill up fast, but if you don’t get into this one, you can join the waiting list for the next workshop in August. Here are the details:
Produced in partnership with Humanities DC, Historic Preservation, and the D.C. Public Library’s Special Collections, House History Workshops are a fabulous introduction to the resources available at local repositories to help you discover the stories behind buildings throughout Washington, D.C.

The event is on Saturday, April 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., MLK Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St., NW, Third Floor.
