The History of Latino Communities in Washington, DC Community Meeting and Presentation

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The DC Preservation League has completed the first draft of The History of Latino Communities in Washington, DC: A Context Study. Please join for a presentation by architectural historian Heather McMahon—the consultant behind the project—who will provide an outline of that history, including associated themes and related sites. There will be opportunities for attendees to comment and ask questions. Once completed, this context study will provide a framework for nominating historic sites to the National Register of Historic Places that memorialize Latino history in the District of Columbia. This community meeting is free and open to the public.

Register here and please forward this email to interested friends, colleagues, and neighbors.

Funding for this project comes from the National Park Services’ Underrepresented Community Grants Fund, from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior. The fund supports efforts to identify historic and cultural resources related to communities that have often been overlooked in traditional planning and preservation efforts.
