Biographical or historical data
Founded in August of 1921, the Michigan Park Citizens Association serves the Michigan Park neighborhood, with boundaries defined by the Association as the railroad tracks and Red Line Metro, Buchanan Street NE, Gallatin Street NE, Eastern Avenue NE, 20th Street NE, Bunker Hill Road NE, 18th Street NE, and Otis Street NE. The Michigan Park neighborhood grew with the advent of the automobile, allowing for the expansion of neighborhoods further away from the city center. The Association advocates for local school and community services and acts as the neighborhood representation with D.C. government agencies and other community organizations.
