Join the National Park Service, Shaw Main Streets, Inc. and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 931 R Street, NW at 6:30pm to discuss the planning and progress of the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site. Currently, the site is undergoing a General Management Plan as well as a Historic Resource Study. This meeting will provide more insightful details about those planning documents and the “Next Steps” towards the development of the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site.
There will be briefing statements from Superintendent, Gayle Hazelwood and Park Manager, Robert Parker as well as remarks from ANC 2C01 Commissioner Alexander Padro and ASALH, the National Park Service official partner to the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site.
The event will be held in a historic former firehouse which once housed Washington, DC’s first all African American fire company. It is now the home and studio of noted neon artist Craig Kraft. The building, located in the Greater U Street Historic District, retains many of its original firehouse fixtures.
This program is part of the ongoing public programs offered by the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site c/o the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site. For additional information concerning this program and other events, please call (202) 673-2402.
