Photographs from the Neighborhood's History
On exhibit at the Cherrydale Branch Library, June 6, 2018 - March 18, 2019.
"It Happened in Cherrydale" commemorates the Cherrydale neighborhood's 125th anniversary and notes three major historical events that touched it:
- The integration of Stratford Junior High in 1959
- The Cherrydale Drug Fair lunch-counter sit-in in 1960
- The contribution of the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department at the Pentagon on 9/11
The exhibit includes some "then and now" photos of the school integration and the Drug Fair sit-in, plus some rare photos of the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department at the Pentagon.
