    Seeking information about housing for Black Soldiers in DC

    Elizabeth White Wayfarer

      A housing development was built in the 1930s or early 1940s for black soldiers/people.  This development included the address1830 First Street, S W, Washington, DC.*. When I was born in 1946, my family lived in a home located at 1830 First Street, SW, Washington, DC.  Walter Washington was the Superintendent of this Project.  Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated i.e., name of project, will be appreciated.  Thanks Much!
