Where - Ebenezer’s Coffee House (downstairs), 2nd and F St. NE. *

Kim Protho Williams will give a presentation on the DC Historic Preservation Office’s Alley Buildings Survey, highlighting the Capitol Hill area, on Wednesday, May 21, 6:30-7:15 p.m. at Ebenezers Coffee House, 2nd and F St. NE (downstairs). Williams is an architectural historian and the National Register coordinator at the D.C. Historic Preservation Office. Her talk will be on historic alley buildings of Capitol Hill and is the result of three years of researching and identifying surviving alley buildings in the “old” city (the L’Enfant Plan) and Georgetown. The presentation will provide some background on the history of alleyways in the city, the rise of alley dwellings and other building types within those alleyways, and then a review of the findings on Capitol Hill. The presentation will highlight some of Capitol Hill’s “best,” or “oldest,” or most quintessential historic alley buildings.
