Heritage Trail Signs Popping Up in the Neighborhood
People walking along Lower Georgia Avenue yesterday may have noticed that the signs for the Georgia Avenue/Pleasant Plains Heritage Trail have begun to be installed. According to a post by Sylvia Robinson on the Columbia Heights Listserv, 11 out of the 19 signs for the trail were installed yesterday.
In Park View, signs 17 (Morton Street & Georgia) and 18 (Park Road & Georgia) have been installed. Sign 16 located at Kenyon — which is devoted to Park View — did not appear to be installed yet.
The pictures here are from sign 18 (right and below) and sign 19 (below) and focus on area grocery stores, the Tenth Precinct building, and the Soldiers’ Home.
The trail begins at 7th and S Streets and ends at Georgia and New Hampshire Avenues. Again from the listserv announcement — “Save the date of Saturday October 15th at 11 a.m. for the official launch of the Trail on the grounds of Howard University Hospital.”History comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
