Historic Neighborhood Groups — North Capitol Citizens’ Association

February 24, 2015

The next historic neighborhood civic group we’ll feature from the 1940s is the North Capitol Citizens’ Association. In looking at the map it appears to cover  the Bloomingdale, Eckington, and Stronghold neighborhoods. In reading the article, I was particularly drawn to the article’s heading declaring that the association wanted better facilities at intersections rather than more parks. The article was originally published in the Washington Post on November 7, 1940.
