Carter G. Woodson House


The National Park Service acquired the Carter G. Woodson House at 1538 9th Street NW in 2005.  The Park Service website states:

Woodson Home National Historic Site will include a restoration and renovation of historic buildings; development, fabrication, and installation of interpretative exhibits; production and distribution of educational and interpretative materials and other site improvement such as parking, way-finding signs, wayside exhibits and much more.

The house however is still “vacant, closed to the public, and in need of rehabilitation.”  More information about the house and Carter G. Woodson himself, after the jump.
