Eastern High School

Working closely with The Capitol Hill Community Foundation, Charles Sumner Museum and Archives, and the Eastern High School community, we are excited to help develop an exhibit that celebrates the centennial anniversary of Eastern’s building on East Capitol Street. During the spring of 2022 our team will search local archives for materials to build out the exhibit content, as well as connect with Eastern alumni and area residents to capture the voices within the school’s walls over time.

In the fall of 2022, the students will learn about the history of Eastern based on the information collected. Each participating student will then design a project based on a section of that history, utilizing various formats such as artwork, poetry, video, movie shorts, and oral history interviews, which ultimately will be included in the exhibit. Stay tuned for more details as this exciting project develops!
