Weekly ePost – 17 May 2022

WSWCA’s weekly electronic newsletter


There are so many reasons to have a Washington Square West Historic District. 

Designation will preserve the rich history of our neighborhood while ensuring that the stories of the past continue to have a physical home to be remembered by. It’s also great for the environment because renovating existing buildings has a lower environmental impact. 

The Civic has hosted many conversations on these topics. Find out more about the effort and to donate at our website.

History Tour Postponed

As part of the fundraising event, the Civic is organizing a series of historic tours around the neighborhood. May has proved to be a busy month!

Although we are looking forward to this tour, we are postponing until more folks can attend. We will let you know when it is rescheduled in the fall.
