loved spending weekends with all my childhood friends from SE that moved to PG County!

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!!

Iverson Mall, walking everywhere any time of day

Comments:

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.

Walking to the mall every day in the summer, working at the rectory, and sleigh riding down our big hill out front (seemed big at the time and we got a lot of snow back then!)

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 pain of puberty, pimples and rejection, real and imagined

Comments:

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.

Comments:

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.

Being able to walk from my house in the Valley (near Green Valley) to Iverson Mall or anywhere without fear.

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!

X-mas time - going to Aunt Alma's and Uncle Derrills, and playing with our counsins (the Rohlfs). Also dated Cary H. from 1976 to 1979. My cousin in the same band. Also Grandmother lived on 28th Avenue.

Comments:

Good Ole Marlow Heights! I remember getting x-mas trees as low as $2 at the Hechts outside plant spot. My Aunt Alma & Uncle Derrill Rohlfs (both who have passed) had a house behind the Dunking Donuts / car wash. Counsins Spencer, and Cindy, and Teresa - always getting together. Lived in Marlow Heights for a few months in the 3rd grade. My grandmother Rose Belt lived behind Hechts on 28th Avenue - she was a sister to John Sharper - Sharper Florist. Grandmother sold the land to Ourismond Chevrolet. This is cool guestbook! Met Cary H. in 1976 and his friend Chuck - followed Cary and my cousin and others in their band (Hybrid Satin) for a few years. Haven't seen him or Bridgett for many years. My cousin Spencer moved to Georgia - he married and had 5 girls, at some point he had to stop trying for the boy. I'm living in Southern Maryland. I had two girls myself, and currently engaged to a great guy. Have been in the mortgage business since the 80's, and the economy has hit me hard. Trying to rebound! Use to shoot pool around southern Maryland. Use to love going to Memories (Bar on 925 - owner Donald a great guy and great bar) Now pretty much just play cards as my hobby - mess around with the 3 digit lottery some, and recently became a grandmother. A lot of memories in Marlow Heights. I love how you made "the Marlow Heights Shopping Center" sign. My sister Jenny worked at Roy Royers on St. Barnabus, and made "Hostess with the Mostess" and won a free trip somewhere (probably in 1977 or 78). I do miss Marlow Heights, and the memories of my relatives.

All the many friends and good times in and out of school

Comments:

This is the first time i've gone to the web site but had heard about it from friends. It really is a GREAT site..... I've spent a few hours reading the stories and reminiscing about the people i know in commmon w/ others. I grew up first in Wash. DC then to Glassmanor for many yrs. until busing came along. My Sr. year at Potomac i was supposed to be bused to Oxon Hill but we moved to the Iverson Towers apts. on 23rd PKWY so I could graduate from Potomac. Even tho I didn't live in the Heights growing up I had alot of friends there and spent alot of time like everyone else at Iverson mall hanging out, worked at Longworth's Cafeteria, the Marlow Theatre and tele-marketing magazines from some seedy office near the mall !
Went to the 15, 20 and a combined 74,75,76 year reunions and had a great time seeing old friends and catching up with people. Love the idea of the Steak in a Sack get togethers and would love to make it to the next one of those !! (When, Date?) i still get together regularly w/ Valerie (Cosh) Cusato and Anthony, Chris (Cusato) Alexander and Biggs, and Paul and Eileen (Driscoll) Gray. It was really fun to read all the stories from the other people i know and look at the pics from the 76' reunions . Many thanks to you for creating this forum and long live its success !!

gravel pits

Comments:

Grew up on 63th Place and went to Bradbury Hgts Elementary - had Ms Grady in 2nd grade!! Anyone remember her. I graduated in 1973 (had Mr Heater for bookkeeping) My sister Debbie graduated in 1972. I married Chuck Merkle who also graduated in 1972 and she married his best friend Bullett (Wirt Trigger - who also graduated 1971 from Suitland). What a great school (back then). We use to skip school and party in the gravel pits (which are no longer there). Got married and moved to Lexington Park and now live in Waldorf. Use to go to Village Barn. Use to party with Bullett, Tommy and Kathy Trigger and Debbie, Mary and Gerry Horstkamp, Andy and John Goldsborough. We lived in Maryland Garden Apts for years and use to have a ball there. We lived at the top of the hill past the pool. Remember the teen club. What great memories. Debbie worked for Kresges and I worked at the Peoples Drug Store at Walters Lane. Use to be heavy but have had the gastric bypass so most people don't recognize me anymore.

I work part time bartending in Waldorf and actually have gotten back in touch with Debbie (Horstkamp) and Andy Goldsborough - who are still married - through a family member of Andys that comes into the Lodge. Mary and Gerry were in my 1st wedding to Chuck

We use to have a "party" room in the downstairs of our apt building (Horstkamps & Cummins) where they had the storage units. It was a nice place to party.

Would love to get in touch with Jeff Gagliano - first crush.

Lived for a little while on Woodland Drive behind Morningside Firehouse and worked at the Laundry Mat for a little while.

Would love to hear from anyone.

Wow, what a great site! I have so many memories. I grew up on Deer Park Drive. Great sledding in that neighborhood. I was bussed from Sandymount to Green Valley where I had Ms. Ethel Brown as my 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. I loved her and still do. If anyone knows of her whereabouts I would love to see her. I am not sure Green Valley is open anymore. I heard that Vicky Harding died, if anyone knows more about that please contact me. I am almost overwhelmed with all of this.

Walking everywhere to hang out with friends. Junior high school and being friends with Penny Cook. Going to the mall, riding bikes to McDonald's with a dollar to eat lunch and still getting change back.

Comments:

I had a lot of fun memories of hanging out as a kid. We always walked everywhere including the mall, marlow heights shopping center, hillcrest heights shopping center and the bowling alley. I grew up in the Hillcrest Heights area and moved to Temple Hills in 1981. I met lots of people and had way too much fun...most of which I can remember!! It would be great to hear from some of the "Temple Hills Crew." You guys know who you are.
I will be checking out the Steak in a Sack in March. Hope to see some people I know.

tons of kids in the neighborhood, lots of street baseball & football with the Galloways

Comments:

Greatly enjoyed K through first half of 5th grade. Forced busing was enforced January of my 5th grade year...many of my friends were sent away and the school (Green Valley) re distibuted and I switched teachers in January. The rest of the year seemed quite tense but improved the following year. My teachers in order from K-6: Hamil, Michaels, Compozzi, Horton, Hitchcock-Morton, Moore then Williams, and Williams. I remember Mrs Bing the librarian, Mrs Maxwell the p.e. teacher, I can not remember the music teachers name, she was very nice..had polio as a kid. I remember Mrs. Cola the principal and later Mr Jamison. I remember being Hansel in Hansel & Gretel and flubbing my lines and mixing them with Gretel's, I remember them filming the first grade play and showing to us---I called Green Valley about 10 years ago to see if they had it stored...no luck. I fondly remember Mrs Maxwells tumbling/dance shows. I lost my nerve with the no hand flips and became the sound guy instead...she loved Herb Albert!!! I ended up really enjoying Mr Williams as my 6th grade teacher...interesting note: 20 years after leaving 6th grade, Mr Williams called my house in Philadelphia to pass along condolences when my father passed away..he was a very classy guy in my eyes.... I moved on the Stoddert..then moved to central PA for 8th grade and lost contact with almost everyone. Would love to know what happened to the Galloways, Lowes, Heiners, Coffees,,,,,

Comments:

I remember my sister worked at the Jr. Hot Shoppes and my buddy Duke and I would go there and go to the Dart Drug and eat all the time. We would hang out in the woods around Weschester Estates. Lots of memories of playing football and baseball at Taney Jr. High. I had a crush on Debbie Doyle when I lived up in Hickory Hills. I had a great friend when I lived there, his name was Boyd Richmond He lived in the apartment project that is across from Silver Hill Elementary School. I look for him now and then but canot find him.

I spent most of my time playing baseball and football with my friends Mike Thayer, Mike Shoop, Mark Shoop, Mike Berganski, Mike Walder, Billy Dodds, Steve Youngerman, Johnny Bayne, Keith Davis (Man was he fast) and anyone else who would play. Worked at the Marlow Heights Theater. Taught tennis for the Rec Center. Worked at Carvel in the Hillcrest Heights shopping center as well as washing dishes at Giovanni's there. Strung tennis racquets for Irvings Sports Shop in Iverson Mall. Worked at Douglas Hi Fi in the mall. My girlfriend at the time worked at the Fanny Mae in the mall. I used to love the O Joys at The Orange Bowl. Their pizza was less than good, though. Almost forgot I also worked at the JR, Hot Shoppes. I loved the Orange Freezes and the Royal Burgers. Anyone remember Pappy Parker's fried chicken? My mom worked at Rector's Restaurant for almost twenty years. I used to love eating at the little restaurant in the Drug Fair. It was the first place I remember where you could fill your own soft drink. Love the sight Chuck. Keep up the good work.

Iverson Mall

Comments:

I stumbled onto your site, because some co-workers and I were talking about the old Jhoon Rhee commercial, 'Nobody bothers me' tag. I remember going to eat at the Red Barn with my Mom. We lived in Carriage Hill Apartments, they are still standing. My Mom worked at HIGH Boys Donut Shop part time in the 70's too. My brother and I would walk to Iverson Mall and Flieshman's Village Market alot. My mom would have killed us if she found out. We went to Summer camp at Shugart school. We loved to play in the woods and walk in the creek all the way to the Suitland Golf Course. I would kill my kids if I knew they were playing in woods these days. I have alot of good memories growing up in this area. Just thinking of all the crazy things we do when we are kids, mostly fun and harmless. I ride through this area alot these days, since I still work in D.C. Some things have changed dramatically, but some are still the same, just some new buisness names on some old buildings. I would say the biggest change to the area is the Metro train that runs to branch ave all the way down Suitland Prkway now.

I can remember walking from my house to the Marlow Heights Shopping to the Hobby Shop where I drolled over all the model planes and tanks. I can just remember when the shopping center was being built, I recall it seemed to be out in the middle of nowhere. We moved into the area from the District in 1957 and I stayed there until I graduated from college in 1976.

Playing with friends in Essex Court

Comments:

I was so young when I lived there that most of my time was spent walking to and from Holy Family, occasionally stopping at the library with a group of friends, walking down about 4 blocks to the Movie Theatre with my brothers, sister, and friends, going to the Iverson Mall or shopping at Marlow Heights Shopping Center. There was also a summer camp across the street that had arts and crafts and a playground. My sister, brothers, and friends would all walk over there and spend the day playing games, playing on the playground, doing arts and crafts, etc. We also use to have bike shows where we decorated our bikes and did tricks on our bikes. We also use to play kickball and dodgeball on Essex Court. Coe Anderson gave me my first bike and that's where I learned to ride. I remember his mom coming over and having coffee with my mom. I remember the Farrells, Reiters, Andersons, Machis, Deebs and others.

Pizza Pan, Gievonnis,Jr.Hot Shop, Fairlanes Bowling,Farmers Road, the bridge from Marlow hgts to Temple Hills.

Comments:

I lived on Lyons St. and would skate board down the Kirby hill where Tony Ice lived. My brother Ronnie Miller (passed away in 1977) would walk down the hill with Mike Lyles(lives in VA Beach with his brothers Steve and Jim)and his dog, Killer. Christene Bubier dated Paul Kraft and one of my best friends at the time Terri Marshall dated Jake Sutter, Roger Unger and others. I have not seen or talked to Terri since 1979 and understand she passed away several years ago in Florida. I loved the Motown sound, sling shots, leathers, peters, with our names engraved on them, and we were call "Blocks", not Greasers. My 1st day of skipping school in 7th grade, Mae Ellis and I went down the farmers road. That big snow storm in the 60's Terri and I walked to Vandeberry's in 3ft of snow and dangled on the car bumpers. I saw Creig Bradford about 8yrs ago in Reston VA. I think Creig and Rose live in Herdon VA. I remember when the Harding brothers got in a fight and we lost Butch. But the good thing about the 60's and 70's in Marlow, Hillcrest and Temple Hills, we could walk anywhere at night without being hurt. The fights at the park behind the Hecht Co. with Oxon Hill and Hillcrest guys did not have guns and they used their fists. One night at 12yrs I had a PJ party and Mae, Liebe, Terri and I snuck out and went to the Steak in a Sack at midnight. Peaches would not go and she did not turn the lights out of my basement and my mom showed up to pick us up. I think about Steve and Janet Cosh everytime I see Steve's younger brother as the Defenseive coach at Maryland and now I see he went to Kansas. My other best friend Pam Hotchkiss lived in Olson Ct. I worked with Cathy Lalumier for the Govt. in Reston VA and I retired in June 08 to move to the big sky country. I am so sorry to hear about Timmy and Patty Smith passing last year. I loved growing up in the area and still keep in touch with my best friends. Yes, I did write the names of my friends on the ceiling of Ben. Stoddard bathroom. Too bad the drugs had to get so many good people at that time. Class of 71 - Sue-koo

I recall the hangouts. Hillcrest Heights Elementary school ball fields; the Hillcrest Heights Boys Club; the baseball field at Holy Family before thsy plopped a new church on it; Iverson Mall; playing "wall ball" in the space between the two sections of the Hillcrest Heights shopping center; Charlene's basement watching the last couple minutes of "the Ice Bowl."
I also recently attended the 40th year reunion of the Holy Family class of '68. In those days had I known Linda was hanging out at the tunnel in Marlow Heights, I would have put on my Goatman outfit(you could buy those at Gary's you know) and hoofed it on over there.

We just had an elementary reunion for 40 years from Holy Family....and this site was mentioned...what a great thing. Does anyone remember the "Tunnel", the "fort", playing 'hide&seek' in the trees behind Sandy Mount....
