Capital Losses Panel Discussion

Hay-Adams Hotel, courtesy of the Library of Congress.
“Carrying the Spirit Forward” – the last updated edition of Capital Losses was published in 2003. If a new and expanded version appeared tomorrow, what lost buildings should it include? Join the DC Preservation League for a panel discussion about DC’s lost buildings and their ongoing legacy. Hear from four local historians and preservationists who will provide detailed stories about four different demolitions featured in James M. Goode’s Capital Losses: A Cultural History of Washington’s Destroyed Buildings. Bring your questions about preservation, demolition and DC’s changing landscape!
This virtual program is free and open to the public. It will also be streamed live to DCPL’s Facebook page and uploaded to our YouTube page after the event.
