Know Your Neighborhood: A Historical Tour Through CUA/Brookland
Tuesday, Sept. 24
|WHERE:||The Catholic University of America
620 Michigan Ave. N.E.
Did you know that Thomas Jefferson was once a guest on what is today the Catholic University campus? That Brookland was called “Little Rome” because it housed so many religious communities? Do you know where on campus the Civil War-era Fort Slemmer once sat? Where the Brooks Mansion is?
Robert Malesky and John Feeley, Brookland residents and CUA alums, will answer these questions and illuminate Brookland’s history through a series of presentations and tours that are free and open to the public.
