Corrections and Clarifications on Our Antique Map of Georgetown   

The cover image of the July 14th Georgetowner displayed an antique-style map of Georgetown, drawn by Georgetowner staff artist and designer Carol Stuart Watson in 1959. A reader who lives on Cambridge Place NW wrote us to point out the one-block west misplacement on the map of Cambridge, Dent and Avon Places. Another noted that the map failed to show the location of the Mount Zion Cemetery/Female Union Band Society Cemetery at 27th Street NW and Mill Road, just north of Q Street. In defense of the artist, let us say that she intended the map more as a work of art than of geography. Still, please email your comments or corrections to Also, send suggestions for a new map which The Georgetowner is planning to publish in anticipation of the semi quincentennial of the United States of America.
