The Week Ahead…Council Member Charles Allen Will Be at ANC6B and ANC6C Meetings

Capitol Hill’s Cesar Chavez Charter School at 709 12th Street is closing in June. You’ve heard that. But you probably don’t know that the building is a contributing building in the Capitol Hill Historic District – changes require Historic Preservation Board approval.  The building used to be a furniture warehouse for the Hachman Furniture Company whose retail outlet was the 1882 Haines Building at 8th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  The Haines Building was bought by Community Connections in 1984.  The building’s retail space facing 8th Street was subsequently occupied by Foot Locker, followed by Dunkin Donuts and Baskin-Robbins.
