Georgetown's industrial past

By Topher Mathews

Did you realize that trains used to rumble down K Street in Georgetown? How about the fact that a pork-rendering plant stunk up the neighborhood well into the 1970s? Yes, Georgetown has a vibrant industrial past. But all that's left are a few old warehouses and factories long since converted to nonindustrial uses. We also have photos and, better yet, memories. Read here for the first of my series diving into Georgetown's industrial past.

Abigail Adams had the following quote about Gtown's past..

"[Georgetown] is the very dirtiest hole I ever saw for a place of any trade, or respectability of inhabitants."
