Comments:

I have searched for some people that attended Camp Springs Elem. Glassmanor and Forest Heights Elem. schools. My best friend was Cynthia Green. I graduated in 1974 but not from the area. I moved in 1968 while I was in Forest Heights Elem. I remember waiting at the crosswalks at Indian Head Highway and the guards would have to walk you accross the two highways. I remember the Drug Fair, Eastover shopping center. I grew up on Branch Ave.(Camp Springs) and Leverett street.(Oxon Hill). Those were the greatest times back then. Things sure have changed a lot since then.

I am from Anacostia but have many fond memories and friends from the Marlow Heights area. My wife Ginny Salm went to Lorraine and then graduated from Potomac in 1972. I am retired but am active in a 10-piece 60's-70's Blue Eyed Soul Band out of Bowie, Maryland called "The Nowheremen". It's a 10 piece band who reunited after 40 years that plays all of the old favorites Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Temptations and have been looking for a group like yours to see if maybe you'd like to have a band like this play at one of your annual events, or perhaps for a holiday party. I can provide as many references as you want as well as music samples, photos, website information etc. Let me know if this sounds like something you would be interested in talking about. The music is great, we just completed a joint concert with "The Fabulous Hubcaps" at the Greenbelt American Legion and we play all over P.G. county. I can be reached at (703) 791-2858 or (703) 915-7222 and my e-mail is don_halcombe@msn.com..............thanks a lot....................Don


You may cut and paste these for a sample.................

I have many happy childhhod memories living on Culver St. We would play outside all day, riding bikes, playing dodgeball in the street, shooting marbles, I remember a game we played called "hide and go seek tag", walking to school in the snow, the ice cream truck, walking to 7/11 picking up coke bottle so I could get some candy, duckpin bowling and, of course, my best friend Patti Acton. I also remember you Chuck, you were in my 6th grade class, Mr. Rich was the teacher. I found myself in one of the class pictures you posted under Sandymount. Thank you for the great web site, I have enjoyed looking through it and taking a trip down memory lane.

His obit is here http://www.heritagefuneralchapels.com/content/obituaries/view.jsp?OID=100161 but they did leave out the T in his name (Ritchie). I was good friends with him back in the 1960's in Naples, Italy

Comments:

I have seen a few familiar names in here and the memories are great. I remember walking to the mall by myself, no worries. I got my ears pierced there. My mom worked at the People's Drug store, I loved visiting there. I attended Sandymount Elem. for 4th 5th and 6th grade. Miss Krupa was one of my favorite teachers she was my 5th grade teacher. I remember some names like Becky Lee, Patty Turner, Gayle Winston, Linda Fortunato, Cecelia French? Shirley French and Steve French were older than me but my brother Mike Ling was friends with them. My brother went to the jr. high that was close to Sandymount, 7th, 8th and 9th grade. He also played sports Silver Hill Boys Club. I remember the winters me and my brother would go door to door with our shove shovels shoveling people's walks, making a little money and then going to the mall.
Dad got transferred to Ohio in 73 and this is where he retired from the Air Force and here is where I still am.

I was searching for the possibility of the recipe for Steak in a Sac and found this site. Brings back lots of memories. I moved to Ca right out of High School, and then most recently to the Pacific Northwest, which my husband,mu dog Ralph and I love. Oh, haven't found the recipe. My family must have been to Steak in a Sac a million times.
Thanks for putting up this site.

UPDATE ON HILLCREST HEIGHTS SAFEWAY CLOSING - I can confirm that the original Safeway in Hillcrest Heights at 2346 Iverson Street will close permanently for business on Saturday July 16, 2011 at 6pm. Unfortunately for the neighborhood there is no word on what, or if, a supermarket will replace its spot. It would be nice if someone could take photos for those of us who can't be there.

I lived in Marlow Heights in the mid-late '60's. I loved Steak in a Sack. Haven't seen one since. I was combing Google looking for copycat or original recipes to no avail and ran across your site that said "Make the original." Couldn't find it.

Any direction you can point me to would be appreciated.

What a shock to see a site about a place I lived for some very memorable years of my life.

Playing in the street

Comments:

I remember so much from my childhood on 27th Avenue down the street from Benjamin Stoddert. I always watched clothing trends even from the time of being a young child. My brother and sisters would be at school and being the youngest I would watch everyone walking home from Stoddert. I remember the guys wearing Mac pants, banlons and high top chucks. The girls would tease their hair, wear long leather jackets, dangly earrings with a ball on the end , fishnet stockings and slingback shoes. My big sister wore that look with the frosty lipstick until my parents decided that fishnet stockings looked trashy and put her back in Catholic school.
People in the neighborhood probably remember my dad for two reasons: 1) The kids would fall into our hedges on their way home from school and my dad would chase them up the street screaming obscenities at them except my middle sister who was able to clear those hedges , easily jumping over them without ever touching them. (She was voted Most Athletic at Stoddert). And the number 2 reason ( a much more beautiful reason)you would remember my dad is he would practice clarinet with the window open in the summer and you could hear it all the way up the street. He played in the President's Band (Marine) and we are honored to have a pic of JFK with my dad sitting in behind him holding his claranet.
There is so much to say but I will leave it there for now.

Some sad news - in or around July the old Safeway at Hillcrest Heights Shopping Center (2346 Iverson Street) will be closing permanently. The number for the store is (301) 423-6464 if you have questions. I don't have any further information yet. Still have relatives in the old neighborhood and word is spreading. The pharmacy department within the store has already closed. Sad to see this remnant from the past leaving us. Many of us got our first jobs there. If anyone has time to take some photos, please share them with us.

I moved to Oxon Hill in 1965 when I was in 9th grade. I worked at Hecht company in Marlow Heights for several years while attending college. I shopped alot at Marlow Heights and Iverson Mall. It was fun seeing the photos you put together on this web site. Although it was MANY years ago, I remember alot of it. I used to eat at Red Barn, but might not have remember what it was called until seeing it on the site.

I have a previous entry. I'm looking for elementary school group photos, especially from Miss Hudson's class, Mr. Colabucci's class, Mr. Taylor's class, and Mrs, Jordan's class.

If you have one, email me for my address and sent it in a tube or stiff envelope so I can photocopy it for the website and then return it to you.

Remember the ant farm in the new edition hall window that allowed us to observe the ants and write reports on their behavior?

Comments:

We moved to Hillcrest heights around 1969-70. Moved around 1978. It was safe enough to walk the streets at night. Does anyone know what happened to Gary Wilson? or Tommy Wilson? They lived right next to the mall off of Iverson St. They worked for Roy Cummings Painting Co. next to the Mall. Gary Married Terry Ketchall. She had a sister named Pam. Not sure if I spelled the name right.

My mom worked at the information booth at Iverson Mall. I would roam the mall unsupervised at age 9 & 10. I came in second place in a Hot Wheels Derby there in 1971. At the mall, there was always some little kid getting lost from his/her mom, and someone would bring the kid to the information booth. Moms would not be in a panic like they would today in losing thier kid. Sometimes they were downright mad at the kid, nevermind worried at all. There was a pet store there at the mall that sold mynah birds and monkeys, among other animals. This was my favorite hangout at the mall while I waited for my mom to get off of work. Temple Hills -- we would walk up Spring Terrace and down St. Barnabas Rd to High's. If you were lucky you'd find a bottle to return for an extra nickel. Twenty-five cents would get you a nice soda and snack, then you would walk home, over the Beltway overpass and back up Spring Terrace (or was it Spring Dr.?) There were kids all over the neighborhood, playing ball in the streets, playing in each other's yards, etc. I lived there until 1972 when I was in 5th grade, and my family moved to Florida.

Going to Red Barn, hanging out at Iverson Mall shopping with girlfriends

Comments:

Those were the days..hanging out with our friends, having a good time, and just being kids. I remember working for the Star Newspaper, selling subscriptions over the phones, working three hours a night and three on Saturday morning, that was sweet. We worked over in a building in Fleshman's Village, do you all remember that place? Remember drinking in the parking lot sometimes, and smoking our cigarettes..HAAHAHA I drove a Gold Dart Swinger, my girlfriends and I would pile into the car, and drive around looking of course for the guys. We would ended up at Red Barn that was the hang out. You could go there and find out if there was a party happening in the area for Friday or Saturday night; it didn't matter if you knew the people, you just showed up. Life was different back then. A lot of things have changed, but I truly believe that the people who grew up there, are the same today as back then. At least I hope so.

Comments:

Being the last of the former greasers (we didn't use the grit name) who later grew his hair long. We wore the Banlons, Chucks, and Bags or baggies (workpants). My Brother and I used to hitchhike to Langley Park to buy our Chucks because they were only 14:00 . Our parents wouldn't buy them because they were too expensive. We wore Peters, but mostly leather coats (not the motorcycle kind)which we got at Wilson's Leather at PG Plaza. We of course hitchhike there so we could have enough money to go to BigBoys for a hot fudge sundae.

I grew up in Camp Springs Maryland lived off of Camp Springs Ave for 17 years. We always went to the Marlow Heights Giant and we used to go to Iverson Mall all the time. I find it interesting that before I was born that Marlow Heights had been there for so long. I still go to that Giant and I am always at the mall. I love the new Burlington, it will always be a place where I have fond memories. Thank you for starting this site it is very interesting to see someone else has history here too.

Thanks for building the site! It was always a special treat to go shopping (especially Christmas shopping)at Marlow Heights. I was only 6 or 7, but I remember always looking forward to a stop at the Red Barn ("When the hungries hit, hit the Red Barn") for a Barn Buster. Always had to split it with my younger brother, but that's OK, I don't think I often finished my half! :-)

Comments:

I have been trying to purchase a Peters Jacket for my husband, for I can't tell you how long, as a birthday surprise. He has talked about them for years. Now I'm thinking of making him one. Is it possible for you to take pictures of the jacket and email them to me, so that I can create a pattern? He specifically talks about the two button collar, the lining on the inside (only within the sleeves), the leather tassle on the zipper, the inside pockets and the buttons on the outside of the jacket at the waist on the sides; and on the sleeves. Any information or design elements you can provide would be most appreciated...I can't believe I found your website. Thanks.
