Join the DC Preservation League and The L’Enfant Trust for an in-person site visit in Anacostia located at 1220 Maple View Place SE. The tour will primarily feature “Big Green”: The L’Enfant Trust’s Historic Properties Redevelopment Program’s (HPRP) upcoming historic rehabilitation of a severely distressed, long-vacant Queen Anne home built in 1902 in Anacostia. Once construction is complete, the property will be sold as multi-unit affordable housing.

The tour will also showcase 1326 Valley Place, SE one of the Trust’s completed HPRP projects in Historic Anacostia that was sold as workforce housing. This event will last approximately 1 hour and will involve around 0.5 miles of walking (no incline to minimal incline). Additional information about parking and metro access will be emailed to registrants the day before the event. If you have a question, please email DCPL’s Programs Manager, Shae Corey at her email address: shae@dcpreservation.org. The President of The L’Enfant Trust, Lauren McHale, will be leading this tour.
