Recent Acquisitions

Thank you, Christ Lutheran Church for your donations!

Christ Lutheran Church on Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda graciously donated several historical items to our collection of Bethesda memorabilia.

Among the items are a beautiful needlepoint kneeler created about 50 years ago; a copy of the original program from the dedication of the kneelers; a copy of the history of the first 60 years of the Church; and a handmade wooden stand from the late 1930s or early 1940s, probably made by the father of the Church’s first pastor. Thank you again!
