The Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association (BNCA) is forming a new history committee. For those of you looking to learn more about our neighborhood’s history, have information to share or just want to see that we preserve what we can, this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor and shape the future of this group.

Ideas for the committee that have been floated so far include:

  • Working with Walking Town DC to develop tours, train tour guides, and develop a permanent walking tour with historic markers
  • Offer history programs to share information on Brookland, Invite historians and archivists to share information with the community, collect and share oral histories
  • Develop strategies for preserving Brookland’s historical resources – act a historical society, landmark nominations, preserve records and photos, look at historic district options
  • Act as a resource for the community on general Brookland History

For more information contact John Feeley at 202 526 8754 or contact the BNCA through their website (www.brooklandcivic.org) or attend the next BNCA meeting on Tuesday February 19th, 7:00 pm at the Howard Divinity School, 1400 Sheperd Street, NE.
