The Georgetown Citizens Association has a new home: a small rowhouse steps from the canal. The new home was formally announced yesterday by CAG president Tara Sakraida Parker:
In the Citizens Association of Georgetown’s 142-year-old history, there have been milestones that we look back upon and cherish as critical points in CAG’s history.CAG gratefully announces a momentous bequest from the Trust of A. Michael Sullivan, Jr., intended to purchase a new permanent headquarters in Georgetown. Our new townhome is located on 30th Street along the historic C&O Canal and will honor Mr. Michael Sullivan and his wife, Beverly Bissell Sullivan. Their legacy gift supports CAG in an exceptional and unprecedented way.For the first time ever, we have a permanent home to gather and grow, and to build a foundation of impact and change.
The house at 1058 30th was bought by the organization in November for $1,020,000, which is pretty good seeing as it was listed in July for $1,100,000.
It is still set up as a residence, as the photos attest:
But CAG will likely not need to make drastic changes to adapt the space for their use.
The organization had been located on the second floor above the BB&T Bank at O and Wisconsin for over a decade. It was pretty threadbare at this point, and was a challenge for the staff and volunteers. This new location will be far more pleasant to use, that’s for sure.
