Did I get too excited with that title? These are so cool. It’s hard to believe that much of the District was rural at any point, but checking out this map, you can see that much of our city, outside of Boundary Road (Florida Ave.) was rural, dotted with little towns and neighborhoods. So, enjoy your pre-lunch time suck.
