CHRS Preservation Café: The Ghosts of Capitol Hill

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 6:30pm

Join the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) for their monthly Preservation Café series at East City Bookshop. September's topic is 'The Ghosts of Capitol Hill.'

Have you ever seen a ghost? Chances are you have without even realizing it. Walking is not required to celebrate the season with a ghostly tour of Capitol Hill!

As one of DC's oldest neighborhoods, Capitol Hill is rich with built history—both the buildings that survive, and stories from those that have been lost. Justine Bello, architectural conservator and Capitol Hill denizen, will introduce some Capitol Hill buildings that once graced our neighborhood. Then, she will discuss the phenomenon of architectural "ghosts"—the physical evidence that remains of buildings that are now gone—to help the audience better understand their homes and neighborhood.

Preservation Cafés are free to CHRS members and non members alike. Watch this space to learn about our featured speakers for November 20. We hope to see you at East City Bookshop, 645 Pennsylvania Ave SE, on October 16 at 6:30 p.m.!
