Historical East Shaw Survey

This monster is 187 pages! The thing that tees me off is the border they make. East Shaw ends at NJ Ave! According to the Capitol Commission (can’t remember the whole name right now) the border was at North Cap. There are so many things that want to cut my neighborhood off from Shaw. Dangit I’m IN SHAW, not Bloomingdale, not Le Droit, not Eckington, but Shaw. Bad enough I’m in Ward 5.

East Shaw Survey (2.1 mb PDF file)

This historical survey of the area just east and right on the border of Shaw’s Truxton Circle is an extremely detailed report of the buildings and the history of the area written up by Kelsey & Associates. Those who own homes or property in the area should read the report as it advocates creating an historic district.
