My favorite site is the canal--it is so charming and we are so lucky to have it--but to my dismay the canal boat is no longer in operation and due to be demolished. Why can't resident's get together and get a fund raiser to refurbish it --or get another boat.

You're the second person today to suggest raising funds and I know that's what Arlette wants to do. Maybe the boat can still be saved? I'll ask at the "farewell" tomorrow. Thanks for your vote! -SC

I definately think funds should be raised. British, half Italian arriving from Munich, Germany 7yrs ago I discovered the charm of the canal and the boat with its history, mules and characters in historical costume. It's certainly something very special to Georgetown and DC's history so it should not disappear! - Teresa

Very upset and disappointed that something historical is not considered worth an economical investment.

Tudor Place is a real treasure and their outreach to locals schools, especially Stoddert Elementary, is praiseworthy?

Sorry, that question mark is a typo.

If we do say so ourselves, Tudor Place is worthy of nomination. A rare expanse of green landscape in the busy city, it combines great architectural beauty with 200 years of domestic and national history plus rich collections. Our public and school programs entertain and educate visitors ranging from toddlers to Elderhostel. Even in a meticulously preserved historic locale like Georgetown, Tudor Place is an asset to treasure.
