Introduction

400 block 1949

[Photo: Historical Society of Washington, D.C.]

As I walk around our neighborhood, I often find myself wondering about the people who have lived here since the second half of the nineteenth century, and I feel intensely curious about their distant lives. On the assumption that many of my neighbors must also share this fascination with the names and personalities of certain persons long dead, I am trying to gather on this blog some miscellaneous scraps of information about the former inhabitants of A Street SE (between Third and Sixth streets) on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. The emphasis is mainly on the people who lived on this street rather than the history of the buildings, though I am compiling any material that I can about the street’s past. There will also be some occasional notes about other addresses in the neighborhood, including of course St. Mark’s Church, which is at the corner of A and Third streets.

The easiest way to find all the posts relating to a particular house is to click on one of the addresses in the dropdown menus under the header above and  in the menu Addresses at the right. The tag cloud below it includes surnames, names of institutions, and a few broad categories like photosdeaths, and marriages. The search box at the upper right is useful for doing more miscellaneous kinds of searches.

I am grateful to several persons who have supplied material for this blog: Gene Berry, Peter Clark, Eric Freund, Mark Kantor, Paul Cromwell, and Maureen Shea. I welcome further suggestions and corrections.

Rev. Owen M. Miller

[Miller lived at 518 A St., SE.]

“A New Baptist Church.” Washington Evening Star, 5 May 1891, p. 9.

[. . . ]

[. . .] The church was organized in December, 1884, with thirty-three members, and was known until recently as the East Capitol Street Baptist Church. Rev. W. M. Ingersoll, now of Cleveland, Ohio, former pastor of the Second Metropolitan Baptist Churches, served the church as supply for several months and was succeeded in August, 1885, by Rev. Owen M. Miller of Russellville, W. Va., who served the church with great acceptance until October, 1838, when he was compelled by failing health to resign the charge of the church, going to Colorado Springs, Col., in quest of health, where he died in January last, never having preached after leaving Washington.
