Summary

The Cabinet Shop of the new Anacostia Exhibits Center of the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum at 1901 Fort Place, S.E., Washington, D.C. The facility allows the museum to design and produce exhibitions and also provides training for minority groups. This facility served as the core for a larger museum building that was completed in 1987 when it was renamed the Anacostia Museum. In 1995 the Museum was renamed Anacostia Museum and Center for African American History and Culture. After the Smithsonian launched its new National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Museum was renamed Anacostia Community Museum in 2006.
