One of the things about having a child in nursery school is that you start having spring breaks again. And thus GM is off to the Low Country for the week. Catch you after Easter.
The CAG meeting on transportation tonight is from 7:00 – 8:30, not 6:00 – 7:30 as GM mistakenly wrote earlier today. Sorry for the confusion!
Tonight GM will be hosting a meeting held by the Citizens Association of Georgetown on the topic of transportation issues. It will be from
6:00 – 7:307:00 – 8:30 (although the first half hour is the reception with wine and food). It will be held at Malmaison at 3401 Water St.
Joining GM will be representatives of the DC Department of Transportation, WMATA (Metro), and the BID. Topics to be discussed will include issues such as commuter car congestion on the side streets, changes to the bus lines, and even the possible future of a Georgetown metro stop. Continue reading
Another historic former church is on the market. And this one comes with a bonus: You get to live across the street from GM!
It’s 1552 33rd St. and it once served as the sanctuary of several Georgetown denominations, such as the Presbyterian church. The 1855 building was converted to residential uses in the 1930s.
While the most distinctive feature of the building is its Tudor style, that was not original to the building. That shouldn’t be too surprising, seeing as it was built several hundred years after the original style fell out of favor, and about 70 years before the style was revived in the United States. Rather, the timber frame style was applied sometime in the mid 20th century. Funnily enough, the current owners, Eric and Jenna Watson, requested permission to return the building to its original non-Tudor style (with clapboard, GM seems to recall) but the Old Georgetown Board rejected it. The faux historical had become actually historical.
But check out how awesome this house is inside:
