Memorials to presidents abound in the nation's capital, of course, but lesser-known reminders of presidents are equally prevalent -- if you know where to look. Do you know where to find the first memorials to George Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt? And why can Montgomery County claim one of the most important connections to Abraham Lincoln? This richly illustrated talk will -- hopefully -- leave you saying, "I never knew that!"

Ralph Buglass is a frequent speaker for Montgomery History on a variety of local history topics and a volunteer researcher for Peerless Rockville, the nonprofit historic preservation organization for Montgomery County’s seat of government. In 2020, with Peerless Rockville, he co-authored Images of America: Rockville, a pictorial history of the city’s 250 years. He also teaches lifelong learning courses at American University, Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery College, and Frederick Community College. A Montgomery County native, he graduated from Winston Churchill High School, then earned a BA in American history from Cornell University and an MA in journalism from American University.

Chevy Chase At Home is delighted to co-sponsor this program with Bethesda Metro Area Village and Bradley Hills Village.
