VOICES from our Earliest Days

CPHS is now in its 28th year and the Cleveland Park Historic District has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places for 26 years. We have posted the newsletters from our earliest days. The first issues of VOICES, from 1987 and 1988, document the steps CPHS took shortly after its founding to secure protection for the historic district and the Connecticut Avenue commercial strip. They include a notice of the founding of our Architectural Review Committee, which emphasizes CPHS’s commitment to continuing the neighborhood’s history of innovative architectural design. These early issues also include articles by Kathy Wood, author of our National Register nomination, on aspects  of Cleveland Park’s historic architecture, including Palladian windows, rope designs, and bungalows.
