Anacostia Community Museum
1901 Fort Place SE
Main, Community, and Kinard Galleries Floor Plan
To celebrate the museum's 40th anniversary, this exhibition documents the development of community life of neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River beginning with the original inhabitation by Native Americans up to the present, while offering possible visions for the future. It covers the struggle over land, who owns it, who controls it, who profits from it, and how residents determine their own destiny.
