Heads up Apple… From an email:

“The Carnegie Library building on Mt. Vernon Square was temporarily closed on September 23, 2016.

Events DC, the manager of the Carnegie Library where the Historical Society is located, identified mold in two areas of the building. Events DC will continue further testing and conduct proper remediation to ensure the safety of the historic building. Please contact 202-249-3000, for all questions related to the building.

The Historical Society’s highest priority continues to be the safety of our staff, the protection of our collections, and ensuring that our scheduled events and activities can take place.

    Sorta doubt this would have any effect on the Apple deal. Mold in a historic building is a pretty underwhelming occurrence.

  • Glover Park

    Did you mean Genius Bar tactic???

    Would have wanted to attend this! I did the historical walking tour of ledroit park on sunday, and am really into the historical society of dc’s stuff! I had no idea DC”s first baseball stadium sat where howard hospital now sits, for instance. And there were so many cool residents of ledroit! (cough cough – there still is)
