We are inviting you to contribute to our new series:

It’s not just the architecture and big events that makes a neighborhood,
it’s also about the everyday people who live, work, and go to school here.
Did you live here or have family that did?
Did you work at or own a business that is no longer with us?
Did you see the most amazing show in your life here?
Do you have related photographs to share?
We want to hear/see all about it!
We will be taking submissions between now and September, 2021.

1) Your name.
2) Your association with Capitol Hill and when it occurred.
