Hey Jack..There are a bunch of us ('67,'66) still in the area. It was a great time back then before we had to grow up. Parties, Hot Shops, bowling alley, dances, teen clubs all over the place. Bobby

iverson mall, marlow heights shopping center etc.

Comments:

I'm happy to know that someone else loves the old neighborhood as much as i do. My brother and moved to Callaway street in 1975. I was four and he was one. We lived there together with our family until my folks moved away in 1993. We finished college and hung around until our own families out grew the family home. He moved to Forestville( by the old Penn-Mar shopping center) and i stayed in Hillcrest Heights. I have two boys and he has two girls. Both of us have great memories to share. On a sad note though, Frank Phiefer who graduated from Potomac in 1973 died two years ago. He is significant because he ran the summer gym at Shugart Jr. high for many, many years and through that dedication many young men developed into scholarship athletes over the years. I can tell more. Email me at Jeffrey.Beckett@pgcps.org. I can't get to your email, (no msn outlook). Anyway, good to have met you. Hope to talk with you soon.

I use to hang in Marlow Heights before the mall was built. Hung out around Hot Shoppes and almost lived in Giovanni's and the Dallas Tap Room

Comments:

Thanks Chuck, what a website, reminds me of the website Memories of DC. My best memories of that area was in the early 60s and 70s. I lived on Naylor Road and I use to come up to Hillcrest Heights Boys Club and box, my coach was Humpry DeCola. It was a time when there was alot of areas taking on other areas. I knew alot of great guys and ladies from that area. I moved to Dallas Place and hung out and shoot pool at Giovanni's and Dallas Tap Room, My hangging partners were Danny Panes, Billy O'Brian Conrad Bayshore, The ladies were Christene Bubuier and Patty Powers ( Palmer) My lady was Beth Sullivan. We lasted five years then we went different directions. Man those were the times. My aunt worked at Steak in the Sac and she use to slide my friends a soda once in a while. I think everybody and everyone hung in there one time or another. I married a lady from Marlow Heights, I met her in DC but she lived in Fountain Square Gardens, her name was Edie we divorced, but we had a beautiful girl. I'm now in WhiteMarsh, Baltimore and I often think of the days. Thanks again

The innocence of the area changing over my childhood and teenage years.

Comments:

I was not around in the 60's but I was raised in the 1970's and 1980's in the Camp Springs/Marlow Heights/Temple Hills area.
I was going through an old yearbook and found an old memory written about telling stories about "Middleton Farm" that was on Old Branch Avenue (on the right side of Old Branch Avenue going towards Allentown Road - it was not too far from the Sunoco gas station at the top of Center Drive.) I was curious about it and began googling Camp Springs and Middleton Farm etc and found this site. I never expected the memories to come flooding back. I remember Iverson Mall and the great water-fountains that my Mom would give me pennies to throw in. I remember having lunch at Woolworths at the counter or Roy Roger in Iverson. I remember window-shopping at Woodies. I haven't lived there since the early 90's and was back in the area driving through in 2006 and was in shock at the changes.... ;)

Thanks for the memories.

Able to walk to the mall, shopping center (would watch fireworks that the shopping center shot off around the 4th of July), Hot Shoppes, K-Mart across Route 5

Comments:

I moved to Marlow Heights in 1976. Lived right behind the shopping center in the duplex houses. I loved the area, so close to shopping. My son grew up and went to elementary school until we moved in the early 80s. My brother owned the Pizza Pan on Iverson Street and I worked there for about a year. The neighborhood was great back then and you could be out at night without fear. My Mom lived there until 1996 when I had a house built in Southern Maryland and moved her here after she was attacked mid-morning walking to the shopping center.

Comments:

Grew up in Froestville then moved to the Marlow Heights (Deer Park) area. Worked at Nu-Look Cleaners, Dave Pyles Pontiac, Pohanka Olds, and the Foot Long Hot Dog Stand (next to the Crown Gas Station) amoung other places. Remeber seeing President Nixon during one of his campaign stops at Iverson Mall. Hot Shoppes was a great place as was the Red Barn. My dad managed a shoe store (E.D. Edwards) in Marlow Heights Shopping Center. One night he had us kids with him at closing time when all of the sudden the PG Police came banging on the front door, wanting to be let in. Turns out the Bo Peep shop next door had been robbed, the police had their guns drawn and ran through my dad's store to get to the back of the shopping center. Us kids thought it was great! Finally joined the Marine Corps in '74 and left the area. It's a different place now though...

the freedom

Comments:

We lived on Essex Ct(5913 I think)in Marlow Heights. My dad was in the Navy stationed at Cheltenham. We moved when he was transferred. I remember the snow storm of 67 or 68. The snow was plowed up to the actual lights on the poles in the shopping center where the movie house was. My dad built us an igloo and sprayed it with water to freeze it. It lasted forever. I remember standing in the long line at the theater to see Help! I remember when Iverson Mall was built. And riding my bike to Jr Hot Shoppes to get a Hamburger, fries and shake - all for less than a buck!! The freedom we had to play outside and ride our bikes with no worries. I am sorry for kids these days that don't have that freedom. I could go to the shopping center by myself, explore, visit with friends - and my mom didn't worry. The only time I went home was to get change for the icecream truck! Only thing I really remember from elementary school is my teacher, Mr. Robinson (I think that was his name - 5th grade) From junior high i remember 2 things - My core teacher whispering to me that young ladies didn't sit with their legs sprawled out and slam books (do you remember them?)Once my mom and I were walking near Hechts and someone had written grafitti with the "F" word. I didn't know what it meant - and I was in 6th grade!! The age of innocence! Somehow I had gotten the nickname "Bimbo" and naive little me I was proud of that name. It wasn't until later when we moved that I understood what it meant! Still don't know who gave it to me or why. My last summer there, I babysat 4 kids for a single mom. The eldest was almost my age. I babysat all summer and made about 100 bucks - boy did I feel grown up buying all my school clothes at Learners with that money. Even bought 3 sets of matching bra and girdles - in different colors. There was a family that lived several houses up from us. They had 3 kids - Lark -- who was my age and 2 older boys. Think one of their names was Lance. Thought they were such unusual names. They appeared to be better off financially than most of the rest of us. Her dad drove a Thunderbird and her mom seemed very sophisticated. On her birthday (lark's) her mom gave her a surprise party. But the surprise was on the guests - we didn't know anything about it. We woke up and my mom gave my sister and I each new pj's and a duster to put on and sent us to their house. It was a surprise breakfast party! Still friends with 1 person that lived on 28th avenue - Patty Hughes - although we don't touch base very often anymore. Well, those are some of my memories. Will enjoy reading others

Jr. Hot Shoppes, Iverson Mall, Temple Hills Swim Club

Comments:

It was so fun to check out this website after reading about it in the Post recently. I especially enjoyed reading other people’s reminiscences of the area. My favorite summer hang-out when I was a kid was Temple Hills Swim Club. I remember the gravel road to get there mainly because it was so noisy and dusty with the windows down, but I was there all day every day during the summer. Remember the super Giant in Marlow Heights where you could buy clothes and other random things? My first job was as a ‘sunshine girl’ serving coffee, tea, etc. at the weekend brunches at Andrews AFB Officer’s Club. I had to wear an orange uniform - ugh. I still have the jingle in my head for “You always get your way at Ourisman Chevrolet…” I remember going to Shakey’s pizza parlor as a fun Friday night out. I remember going to The Marlow theatre where the line could wrap around the building for a blockbuster like Towering Inferno. I could go on and on about the places and memories of those days. It was such a simpler time. It’s fun to share those memories with others.

Cruising all the drive in restaurants, like the Mighty Mo, all the Hot Shoppes. The drive in movies like the Hillside, the gravel pit, the Marlow theater, Hecht Co, Woodies, the Hot Shoppes cafeteria, the hobby shop. firehouse dances in Bladensburg?

Comments:

I was born at Sibley Hospital and spent my 1st 5 years living between 6th & 7th on "B" St NE (later changed to Constitution Ave. Most of my early childhood & teen years was in SE DC. I lived across from the Sears on Alabama Ave & went to Kramer Jr High, Mackin High School and graduated from Anacostia in '65.

We spent a great deal of time at the Mighty Mo on Pa Ave SE, but cruised all over. Anyone remember all the muscle cars at the "Mo"? We called the area where all the cool cars parked "The Showcase" Marlow Heights was an extension of SE to me. My roommates uncle owned the hobby shop in Marlow Heights. Every boy in the SE and MD area has been in that shop. Everything on Branch Ave was part of my life, the Half Shell (great crab cakes), the Big Boy, Stricks (getting beer at 1 in the morning), Dunkin Donuts, Sam's Car Wash, Iverson Mall (my barber was there), the Marlow Theater, (saw The Godfather there, Ben). I remember the gravel pit (kind of a lover's lane for us). Loved the Roy Rogers hamburgers.

After we became legal, we hit all the bars in SE, like the End Zone, Harrigan's, Maxie's, the Naylor, Someplace Else, etc. Don't forget Dino's Restaurant in Suitland, (pizza was great). I had a girlfriend in Clinton for 4 years. By the way, girls wore skirts a lot more then they they do now. I miss that! I have to admit I had a great time back then. There were some wild times, but things were a lot more simple back then. I have a huge amount of memories and could go on and on.

After High school and college (University of MD), I was a tour guide for the US Capitol Guide Force at the Capitol building. It was the most fun job I ever had. It made me appreciate where I lived all that much more. I recognize a few names in the guestbook, but a lot of them are a little after my time. This is a great site, and there are a couple of other ones that are great too, such as the Anacostia High School site: http://anacostia.homestead.com/ANACOSTIA.html & Memories of DC http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/4759/index.html. They are both a lot of fun too if you haven't already checked them out.

Keep up the good work, Chuck.

Working @ Hot Shoppes Jr, Woodies, and Dunkin Donuts. Loved going to teen dances @ Bolling AFB and hearing the Tuesdays Boots. Skipping school and going downtown. Drag racing at the NRL.

Comments:

Thanks so much for the website. It is certainly a nostalgic walk through this area. I worked @ the Hot Shoppes Jr (my first job), the Woodies @ the Mall in the Wig department. Also worked @ the Dunkin Donuts in 1968 while attending Crossland which I transferred to after going to La Reine. So many people moved out of the area I never imagined anyone remembered anything of those days.

Does anyone remember, a band who later became the Cherry People who used to play at the Bolling AFB teen club? I can't remember the name of the band that played alot a Crossland and Surrattsville HS. Was it the New Tuesday Boots?

Anyway thanks for the memories.

Going to the mall

Comments:

Thanks Chuck for putting this great web site together and letting us all go down memory lane! I remember going shopping at Iverson Mall, Woolworths, Montgomery Wards and Hechts often with friends and family. Loved going to the movie theater and carnivals in the parking lot. My most vivid memory is sitting in the car at the JR Hot Shoppes and listening to "American Pie". I think of this place everytime I hear that song - what a sweet memory!

I think this site is cool,I found out about it in the post,I grew up in all the areas mentioned and walked to most of them as a teen,worked as a phone person for county cab when they had a dispatch office off of st.barnabus rd. also used to skip school and hang around marlow hts.I worked a few summers at the red barn on the marlboro pike,even got robbed one night and locked in the cooler, one of the guys who worked with me picked a dead guy out of the mug books the police showed to us. It was a different time then we used to walk all the way down branch ave, to pennsylvania ave and downtown dc. They are good memories

walking all over ,going to the Iverson mall ,

Comments:

Hanging with my friends at the Maplewood apts. Connie Hall,Rose Pringle and Diane Lowe and Laurie ?. I remember going to the Jr.Hot Shoppes for orange freezes.Barn busters.I remember spending time at the hillcrest hghts. elementary doing park and rec activities. I loved walking to my friends' houses after school[ Holy Family ].I always felt safe. I went to an eighth grade reunion in 2006. a sad change to behold. I was surprised that a number of classmates and parents still reside there.Walking the hallways of Holy Family was like stepping back in time.

Comments:

Grew up on both ends of 23rd Parkway, spent most of my young life in Maplewood Park apartments, with my best friend Mary Lou Broughman. Walking to High's for ice cream, shopping at Iverson Mall, being able to sit through multiple showings at the movies without paying extra. School dances at Stoddert (my mom chaperoned). I ended up attending Eleanor Roosevelt the first year it opened then moved to Waldorf. There are so many memories just not enough time or space to list them. I loved growing up there, wish my kids had that kind of experience. Everyone knew everyone and you were safe.

I sawa thw article ikn the Washington Post and when you mentioned Miss Doyle, I thought you must have gone to Sandymount elementary because I had her too. I'm 54 so a few years before you. My most vivid memory is learning that President Kennedy had been shot--I was buying ice cream from a truck in front of school. They did not tell us in school so I learned it from the ice cream man

Wow, that picture of Iverson Mall hit me like a ton of bricks! All of these memories came flooding back! My friends and I spent way too much time at that mall. I remember they had a pet shop in there that we used to go into. I also remember a pizza joint right across from the store where we bought our first color tv. What was the name of the electronics store? Thanks for the memories!

My first job was at Iverson Mall I worked at Montgomery Wards. I could not wait to get my paycheck on Wednesday and spend the majority of it at the Pagoda 7 drinking cocktails (I was underage and they never carded you) and eating steak on the skewers. I love your website! The memories it brought back to mind. Remember Hot Shops you could feed a family of 5 on less than 30 dollars.

Comments:

Hi
Saw your piece in The Washington Post today. What memories you brought back! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you spent into putting this site together!
I have to say that growing up in SE and nearby Marlow and Hillcrest Hghts was wonderful. As an adult I hear people from other areas telling stories of their childhood. In many case they're not filled with good memories. I honestly have to say I have many many more good memories of growing up in SE/Marlow Heights. We didn't have alot of material things..no one really did in the area, but we were happy living in a very safe area, low crime rate, and a feeling of a real community. After I graduated from Anacostia HS, my folks moved to Marlow Overlook in the late 60s. Loved spending time at the Marlow Overlook pool, eating at the Hot Shoppes and the Red Barn, China Sea (suitland) going to see movies at the Wineland Theaters (including Marlow)
Thanks for the memories and I will be sending your site address to many others who were lucky enough to call SE DC and Marlow Heights, Hillcrest Heights home!!

It was a great time in my life -- Moved there in 1967 from Southeast DC. Took a WMATA bus to school each day to 10th & G NW to attend high school. Had lots of company from the area traveling to schools downtown. My best friend went to Potomac and we hung out all the tme just enjoying being teenagers. Married a guy from Hillcrest Heights and got married at Holy Family. Lots of great memories. Thanks so much for this wonderful site.

Peppermint Pipers, The community center (behind Hecht's)

Comments:

I'm not sure who started this website, but it's a GREAT idea. I stumbled on this and it's like taking a step back to my childhood, when it was a much easier time than today. I was born in Marlow Heights and moved away in 1981. I lived in a small neighborhood behind Dunkin Donuts, off St. Barnabas Road. I remember when Branch Avenue was a small two lane road and I walked to Sandymount and Benjamin Stoddart. I used to love walking to High's in the shopping center and getting fresh made ice cream. I remember when Iverson Mall was built and I was the first girl to be a salesperson at Thom McAn shoe store. My brother, Spencer and sister, Teresa worked at Roy Rogers for a short time. My very first job was as a wiper at the car wash next to Dunkin Donuts. I hung out at Float 'N Smoke (remember that place?) which was in one of the old houses next to IHOP. I learned to drive in the Toys R Us parking lot. I competed in pool and billiards. I held the Ladies Maryland state title for eight ball in 1979 and 1980 and I competed with the Woman's Professional Billiards Alliance (WPBA) in 1980. I owe that to the community center where I first learned to play on a carom board. I am now an information technology professional (systems analyst) in the health care industry in Towson, MD.

Comments:

What a great neighborhood to grow up! There were always so many kids hanging out outside. I remember walking to the mall every day in the summer and going to Orange bowl. I remember working at the Rectory at Holy Family, they paid me $75.00 a month to answer their phones and back then that was big money for a teenager! We walked everywhere in those days and could sleep outside in the summer without ever feeling afraid....boy has that changed. My mom just moved out of the area about 5 years ago but I know I hadn't been to the mall for a long long time prior to that and you couldn't walk around the block even anymore. It was a good area to grow up, wish I could find someplace like that now for my own kids.

The GEM store where I met a beautiful girl named Peggy B. Too bad she was 17 and I was 21. It made a difference back then. Another beautiful blonde named Marsha D. who was only 4 foot 11 inches tall and I was 6 foot 2, skipping school with her drinking rum-n-cokes listening to the Kingston trio. Bowling with the Congressional Secretaries league at the Marlow Bowl America lanes 4 gals and one lucky guy. Street racing on the new Penn Ave Extended, and down at Aquasco Speedway, wonder whatever happened to it? Remembering the wreck at Silver Hill rd. and St. Barnabas rd. where the newspapers said someone had their "leg decapitated".
Cruising the Mo in District Heights, on Penn Ave in DC, and the Dixie Pig in Capital Heights. The Iverson Apartments and all the FBI preppies
( girls ). It was a big deal, the Shopping Center my first mall. Coffee at 2 AM at Dunkin Donuts, where me and my friend Ronny D. commmented the only people out this time of nights were "Cops and wierdos and drunks". I'd never dream of visiting any of these places now after dark.

I remember working at the Marlow Theatre in 1974, with a few of my classmates that I haven't seen in many years. I am still in the area, working at the Suitland Federal Center for the past 29 years. I attended the 20-year reunion and had a great time. A lot of good times and maybe too much partying but have no regrets. I would love to hear from some of my long lost friends and classmates. E-mail me anytime, so we can catch up.

Comments:

WOW Lots of memories from the area.
When the new Library moved from the store front in Hillcrest Hgts Shopping Center to the new building...at that time it was considered state of the art and modern. Going to Dottie and Nicks,(what was the name of the bakery next to Murphy's?) after mass at Holy Family. Getting ice cream cakes from Caravel. Shopping at the local drug store (next to Safeway) before Peoples Drug moved in. Working at Peoples Drug Store. Working at Red Barn (I fried chicken). Buying my 1st TV with my 1st real paycheck from Circuit City behind Roy Rogers. Buying the HFS School Uniforms from the place in the Marlow Heights Shopping center.

My last memory of the area was...I was attending my 25th year reunion from Holy Family and during mass someone broke into my car and stole my cell phone. At that point in time I realized that the neighborhood had changed and all of the postive memories had been shattered.

the kindness of others and the freedom to roam

Comments:

Thank you for this wonderful venue! The world described in these posts was for me a scarier and a more intimidating place. For example I didn’t know there was a theater group in District Heights; I’m genuinely surprised to find this out. In my little subsection there seemed to be villains and attackers lurking in every shadow and in the weeds that lined the many wooded paths. Jumping people was a favorite pastime of some Big Mack-clad louts; perhaps my imagination was “running away from me’. I was also a Vaseline encrusted “block” (Dixie Pomade on drinking nights). I was egged for my attire one night walking home from my job at Burger Chef. The jerks nailed my arm right above my elbow; getting hit with an egg thrown from a moving vehicle frigging hurts, y’all. I yelled and challenged them to try it again and in a feat of accuracy that still amazes me to this day they did. They scored a hit about 6 inches below the other one on the same arm. I was so stunned that the rock I had intended for their windshield remained in my hand unlaunched. I think I met the perpetrators a couple of years later at a mescaline deal; they were bragging about egging rednecks but by that time I had gone psychedelic and it didn’t seem important enough to follow up on. The wonder of this site is that most of you would understand this type of nonsense; try explaining this to your youngsters when they text you from the next room to see if you brought home some dinner. Good luck to everyone!
