The Anacostia Neighborhood Museum is renamed the Anacostia Museum. The Smithsonian staff newspaper, The Torch, attributes the change to the fact that the "museum serves a public beyond its immediate environment and has obtained a national and international reputation through the circulation of its traveling exhibitions and the distribution of its publications."  Today it is named the Anacostia Community Museum.
