NEW DATE! “A Linear City in the ‘Burbs: Connecticut Avenue and the Growth of DC”

This is the talk that we had to cancel in February. The new date is APRIL 3.

Connecticut Avenue Bridge in 1911

Join us for an illustrated talk by Matthew J. Bell, FAIA, on the development of Connecticut Avenue. Bell, an architect and professor of architecture and urban design at the University of Maryland, will discuss the history of Connecticut Avenue’s development as Washington grew and streets were extended beyond the L’Enfant Plan. Join us to learn about how Cleveland Park’s own portion of Connecticut fits into the history of this uniquely urban-suburban avenue.

When: Monday, April 3rd at 7:30 pm

Where: Cleveland Park Congregational Church, 3400 Lowell Street, NW

The talk is free for current CPHS members and $15 for nonmembers. Reserve your tickets using the form below. (If you have any trouble with this form, you can go directly to our Eventbrite page at
