Dorothy's Woods to be dedicated Sunday in Takoma Park
Takoma Park Mayor Kate Stewart will officially present a copy of the resolution designating a City-owned forest area "Dorothy's Woods" to resident and local historian Dorothy Thomsen Barnes on Sunday, October 23 at 1:00 PM. The ceremony will be held at the woods, located at the intersection of Woodland and Circle Avenues. Refreshments will be served.
Barnes was born in a house at the edge of the woods on Elm Avenue in 1922, and grew up playing in those woods, in which many of the trees were only small saplings at the time. The woods include a natural spring.
