This River Terrace History Scrapbook website was made possible, in part, by a DC Community Heritage Project grant, administered by the DC Preservation League.

Funds for the DC Community Heritage Project are provided by a partnership of HumanitiesDC (an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities) and the DC Historic Preservation Office (part of the DC Office of Planning), which supports people who want to tell stories of their neighborhoods and communities by providing information, training, and financial resources.

This DC Community Heritage Project has been also funded in part by the US Department of the Interior, the National Park Service Historic Preservation Fund grant funds, administered by the DC Historic Preservation Office and by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

This program was supported through a Historic Preservation Fund grant administered by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of Interior. Funds were used for the identification, protection, and/or rehabilitation of historic properties and cultural resources in the District of Columbia.
