- The Singer Building is getting ready for a renovation. Here’s a look at the historic Mount Rainier building in days gone by, courtesy of the Library of Congress. The photo was taken on a glass negative and donated by Herbert A. French, owner of the National Photo Company and an inaugural member of the White House News Photographers when it was founded. Renovations on the Singer Building, which was built in 1936 in the 3300 block of Rhode Island Ave, are expected to be completed by the end of the summer. A group of veteran restaurateurs will open a new bar and restaurant in the Singer Building. Erin Edwards and executive chef Jesse Miller from the popular @barpilar and @cafesaintex restaurants in D.C. and Garrick Lumsden, formerly of Passion Food LLC, have signed on to open the new spot this September. “We love the close-knit, artistic community that already is thriving in Mount Rainier,” the co-owners said in a statement. “We hope to create a welcoming spot where neighbors can eat, drink and gather throughout the day, and look forward to working side-by-side with other businesses, artists, and residents to create new opportunities in the heart of the neighborhood.” Other planned tenants include Annie’s Ace Hardware, which already has locations in #Brookland and #Petworth; and arts incubator @recreativespaces. Bar Pilar and Café Saint-Ex, which is named for the author of “The Little Prince,” are both known as laid-back neighborhood watering holes in the 14th Street Corridor.#mtrainiermd #brentwoodmd #hyattsvilleartsdistrict #hyattsville #universityparkmd #riverdaleparkmd #collegeparkmd #beltsvillemd #greenbeltmd #rt1corridor #preservemd #mdhistory #pgcountymd #pgcounty

- What do #UniversityParkMD, #Hyattsville and #CollegeParkMD all have in common? All three played a part in the life of #JimHenson, world-renowned puppeteer and creator of “#TheMuppets." James Maury “Jim” Henson was born in Leland, Miss., in 1936. His father, Paul, an agronomist with the Department of Agriculture, was transferred from Mississippi to the Washington, D.C., area in the late 1940s and Henson and his family relocated to University Park when he was in the fifth grade. Commenter John Essex pointed us to the exact addresses of the homes where Henson and his family lived: 4012 Tennyson Rd. and 4002 Beechwood Dr., both in University Park. We spoke with Karen Falk, the curator for the Jim Henson Company, and she confirmed those are correct. Still, while Henson lived in University Park with his family, he went to Northwestern High School in Hyattsville and attended the @univofmaryland College Park, where he created “#SamandFriends.” So no matter how you slice it, University Park, Hyattsville and College Park can all lay claim to Henson in some way, though the curated archives of the Jim Henson Red Book project and quite a few other resources online about Henson generally refer to him as living in Hyattsville. #mtrainiermd #brentwoodmd #hyattsvilleartsdistrict #hyattsville #universityparkmd #riverdaleparkmd #collegeparkmd #beltsvillemd #greenbeltmd #rt1corridor #preservemd#mdhistory #pgcountymd #pgcounty

- Here's something you might have walked past without realizing it. The Hyattsville Wire spotted a mounting block in University Park which is a set of stairs to get on and off a horse more easily and was typically used by young and old riders and women riding side saddle. Next to it is a post for tying up the horse. We aren’t sure when this was built or if it was ever used for that purpose. It’s possible it was added later as an affectation. Either way, it’s a reminder of the long-standing history of University Park and one of those things that makes the area quaint and charming. University Park was incorporated in 1935 and much of the community is a national historic district and on the National Register of Historic Places. #riverdaleparkmd #universityparkmd #rt1corridor #dcrealestate #dcrealtors #dcrealtor #dchome #realestate #realestateinvestor #hyattsville #hyattsvilleartsdistrict #brentwoodmd #bladensburgmd #collegeparkmd #rt1 #greenbeltmd #beltsvillemd #und #pgcounty #riverdaleparkstation #mdhistory #preservemd #pgcountyhistory #historicdistricts

- Now home to @franklinsbrewery, the Hyattsville Hardware Co. building is one of the oldest downtown. According to state historical records, the main block was built and used as a carriage factory in 1894 and by 1910 was used temporarily as a firehouse. Between 1910 and 1913, it was converted to a hardware store which remained in operation for 80 years. In 1992, the store closed and later that year the building converted into a restaurant now known as Franklin’s . Much of the exterior of the building remains intact and renovations done to the interior were done to preserve the wooden floor and metal ceiling. #flashbackfriday #mtrainiermd #brentwoodmd#hyattsvilleartsdistrict #hyattsville#universityparkmd #riverdaleparkmd#collegeparkmd #beltsvilleMd #greenbeltmd #rt1corridor #preservemd#mdhistory #pgcountymd #pgcounty

- There is a famous Bob Dylan song with ties to #Hyattsville's #historicdistrict. On Aug. 28, 1963, Bob Dylan was 22 years old and William Devereux Zantzinger was 24. A folk singer from New York, Dylan performed at the civil rights march on Washington where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. At a courtroom 70 miles north in Hagerstown that same day, Zantzinger was sentenced in the death of an African-American barmaid. The lives of Dylan and Zantzinger would soon intersect in ways that illuminate American history, and Hyattsville played a role. The UPI wire service soon after ran a story, “Farmer Sentenced in Barmaid’s Death,” which was printed in the New York Times. A friend showed it to Dylan, who reportedly grew so incensed he stayed up all night writing a song about the case. “William Zanzinger (sic) killed poor Hattie Carroll/With a cane that he twirled around his diamond ring finger /At a Baltimore hotel society gathering,” began “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” which appeared on his next album, the classic The Times They Are a-Changin’, released in January of 1964. Dylan got a few facts wrong, including the number of Carroll’s children, the spelling of Zantzinger’s name and his “high office relations in the politics of Maryland.” The Zantzingers’ prominence and wealth came in part from deals made in Prince George’s County, especially Hyattsville. Richard Zantzinger and his brother, Otway Jr., were real estate developers who worked a lot in the Hyattsville area with the firm O.B. Zantzinger Co. Otway Zantzinger subdivided the Hyattsville Hills neighborhood and built a number of homes in the historic district.
