In 1974, as Capitol Hill residents prepared to apply for Historic District status, Suzanne Ganschinietz of the D.C. Historic Preservation Office and and Hazel Kreinheder of the Capitol Hill Restoration Society interviewed W. Milton Sladen to determine what residents considered the boundaries of Capitol Hill. The interview provides fascinating details of the residents, houses, and businesses in the Lincoln Park area and elsewhere through the first two-thirds of the 20th century.
