Event description

Description

(Rescheduled from Feb. 27th; now on MONDAY, APRIL 3RD)

The Cleveland Park Historical Society presents an illustrated talk by Matthew J. Bell, FAIA, on the development of Connecticut Avenue. Bell, an architect and professor of architecture and urban design at the University of Maryland, will discuss the history of Connecticut Avenue's development as Washington grew and streets were extended beyond the L'Enfant Plan. Join us to learn about how Cleveland Park's own portion of Connecticut fits into the history of this uniquely urban-suburban avenue.

The talk is free for current CPHS members and $15 for nonmembers. Refreshments will be served.
