With Hank Levine of the Bethesda Historical Society.
Presented by Bethesda Metro Area Village and Bethesda Historical Society. In this presentation, we will hear the story of how in the century after the end of World War II Bethesda became the affluent suburb and urban center we know and (mostly) love today. Join us as we explore how the rise of the automobile brought new neighborhoods and a growing central business district; how the zoning and planning ‘wars’ of the 1960’s to 1990’s shaped our community; and how Metro jump-started the growth of a town into a city.
