Dear KCA Members and friends,
The monthly membership meeting date of the KCA for January has been changed
to Thursday, January 26. This was done so that our guest speakers could be
We have an interesting meeting planned, concentrating on some of the
architectural and social history of what we now know as Adams Morgan. The
meeting will have three segments:
1. Professor Mark Mack of Howard University and Mary Belcher, KCA's
community liaison to the Walter Pierce Park Archaeology Project will provide
an overview and summing up, complete with slide show, of the activities of
the Project to date. Over 8,000 African Americans and Quakers were interred
in the area of Pierce Park in the 1800's.
2. Laura Trieschmann of EHT Traceries, Inc., the local architectural
history firm, will provide a talk on what makes up an Historic District or
Landmark, how they become officially recognized, and discuss the three
historic districts in Adams Morgan, our Landmarked buildings, and touch on
other buildings of note.
3. KCA in the past has spent much time and resources in a campaign to
convince the National Zoo, part of the Smithsonian Institution, to preserve
Holt House and put it to some constructive use. The Zoo's current Master
Plan does just that and plans are afoot to turn the early 1800's mansion
into a research facility. Zoo officials are invited to bring the public up
to date on their planning.
I hope you'll be able to attend what should be a very interesting evening.
KCA welcomes new members. Dues are just 25.00 and can be sent to KCA, PO Box
21311, Washington, DC 20009, or pay with a credit card and PayPal on our
Happy New Year, and I hope to see you on January 26.
PS: As usual, the meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at Good Will Baptist Church,
1862 Kalorama Road. Go up the main front steps and bear right to the rear
