Lost Farms and Estates of Washington, D.C.

In this book local historian Kim Prothro Williams finds traces and tells the stories of the farms, estates, and plantations that lie beneath the capital’s monuments and official buildings. Sheep and wine grapes in the hills of Northwest, African American farms in Chevy Chase, and a plantation on Roosevelt Island.

This review appeared in CHoWline, the monthly newsletter of the Culinary Historians of Washington, DC–an excellent group!
