February used to mean the Founders' Day Sale at Woodies. Woodward & Lothrop is no more, but The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. opened a new exhibit, "Remembering Woodies," on February 24th at the Heurich House Museum, 1307 New Hampshire Ave., NW.
"Remembering Woodies" showcases materials in the Woodward & Lothrop Department Store Collection, recently added to the permanent collections of The Historical Society of Washington, D.C. The exhibition traces Woodies' role in the development of the city of Washington as an urban center. Photographs, bill enclosures, catalogs, manuals, scrapbooks, artifacts, and clippings document how the store and the city grew up together. The exhibition opens February 24, 1996 and continues through November 2, 1996.
