“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for tips on researching the history of our 20-unit building in Woodley Park. I’m pretty sure (but not 100% sure) that the building turns 100 years old next year, and it would be nice to do something to commemorate the occasion. It would also be cool to learn about the building’s history and if there have been any interesting occupants. Where should I start?”

Ed. Note: I’d say head to DCPL’s Washingtoniana location in Van Ness.


Thanks to Audrey for sending: “It runs the length of Woodley Place, which is a one-way street on which the traffic changes directions at Woodley Rd. It’s one-way north-bound from Calvert Street to Woodley Rd (shown in the photo) and one-way south-bound from Cathedral Ave to Woodley Rd. The bike lane configurations are different on each segment of the street.” Read More
