The George Hewitt Myers Residence

 The George Hewitt Myers residence designed by John Russell Pope c. 1912 at 2310 S Street in Washington D.C.  Myers was an extensive collector of textiles and today his home functions as The Textile Museum.  Click HERE to see the Myers residence on google street view.

The Textile Museum has been wanting to relocate. The Woodrow Wilson House next door should buy it and move in its museum administrative offices, etc., allowing the Wilson house to be all-museum.

I second the motion.

The motion has been made and seconded. All those in favor? It sounds almost too logical, so probably won't happen---esp. with the National Trust practically down the tubes.

Such a handsome house. Mildly amusing side note: In the old days, photos would often arrive at magazines with handwritten notes about them. This occassionally led to some inaccuracies in production, to wit, this house appears in Augusta Owen Patterson's book as in Watch Hill Road R.I., rather than correctly in Washington DC.
