Queen’s Chapel Civic Association Collection, 1965-1995

Finding Aid

Collection No. 105 (1.5 Linear Feet)
D.C. Community Archives


The collection was donated in 1996, by Richard Teasley, President of the Queen’s Chapel Civic Association, and Ophelia C. Daniel, a former officer.                                    


On Sept. 14, 1965, the Brookland Civic Association ceded the area bounded by Sargent Road NE, Eastern Avenue, Michigan Avenue, NE, and South Dakota Avenue NE, to the newly formed Queen’s Chapel Civic Accusation. The group’s goal was to “work for the betterment of our area and the community at large with: presentation of informative speakers; publication of the Civic Seer; maintaining close relationships with the Fifth District, the D.C. Federation of Civic Associations, and with schools.”
