“Rehab Reflections: The Journey of 417 N. Jonathan Street”
with Laura Houston

Tuesday, September 28 @ 2:00 p.m.

The journey of the cabin that now sits at 417 N. Jonathan Street in Hagerstown, Maryland began nearly 300 years ago. In its lifetime it has seen the birth and expansion of a nation, a people’s fight for freedom and the end of slavery, two World Wars, trailblazing movements for equal rights, and the rapid growth of the region surrounding it, all the while serving as a home to families and individuals with their own unique lives and stories to tell (likely including that of the town’s namesake, Jonathan Hager). Today, despite prior threat of disrepair and imminent demolition, with the help of Preservation Maryland and the generosity of numerous donors, the humble dwelling in the heart of the historic Jonathan Street community stands revived and resolute, ready to hold the stories of many more generations of homeowners.
