This Date in History

July 24, 1911: The initial steps in an important plan to improve the city and care for the future of the National Capital were taken when Senator Curtis introduced two bills that contemplated valuable additions to the park system of the District. Similar measures were introduced in the House. One of the measures provided for the purchase of the Klingle Ford valley, and the other for the extension and improvement of Lovers’ lane, between Massachusetts avenue and R street. Both measures were strongly recommended by the District commissioners.Senator Curtis
