The 5pm Post – From the Events Calendar, PoP Picks…


Know Your Neighborhood Series: Mount Pleasant, An Historic Overview @ the Mount Pleasant Library:

Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library
3160 16th St NW
Saturday, April 20th, 2013
2:00pm – 4:00pm | FREE!

Mount Pleasant started as a post-Civil War country village, but most of the neighborhood we know today was built after the streetcar arrived in 1903. Historian Mara Cherkasky will use maps and images to take you back to Mount Pleasant’s origins and allow you to see how it developed as it did. Cherkasky has written several accounts of Mount Pleasant’s history and has led numerous walking tours of the neighborhood.

Join us Saturday April 20th at 2:00 pm in the meeting room on the main floor of the library for this wonderful presentation. Mara’s book about Mount Pleasant will also be available for purchase.
