Unrealized 1867 Vision for Meridian Hill

We posted a cool old property map of Columbia Heights the other day. Today, we’re showing you something that we dug up showing an alternate view of what Meridian Hill could have looked like, starting back in 1867. A few of the street names are the same, like Columbia Rd. and Crescent St. Others like Superior and Boundary became Kalorama and Florida respectively. Click on the map and see what you recognize.
