From a press release:
“The Humanities Council of Washington, D.C. (HCWDC) is pleased to announce its popular House history workshops return. They will be held Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St. NW in the Washingtoniana Division (3rd Floor). Two workshop sessions will be held: Workshop I: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm and Workshop II: 12:30pm – 3:00 pm. This year’s House History Workshop will guide community historians, of any skill or knowledge level, through the DC Public Library Washingtoniana Division’s collections. Participants will learn how to research the history of their own home or any other historical property.
These workshops will feature presentations by professionals who will guide workshop participants on how to navigate the collection of maps, building permits database, photo archives, microfilm records and the council’s DC Digital Museum.
The House history workshops provide residents with an opportunity to explore the history of their homes including the date the home was built, architect, builder, dates of any improvements, former residents, and how the neighborhood evolved over time. House history research is powerful because it provides that personal connection to the past that few other types of historical research can; it allows anyone to forge a strong sense of connection with their neighborhood and their community whether they have called DC home for years, or just moved in last month.
Workshops are free and open to the public. Registration is required, to attend please sign up here.”
