 The Hill Center plan is the work of the Old Naval Hospital Foundation, a broad coalition of Capitol Hill neighbors committed to seeing this landmark property fully restored and kept in community use as a thriving arts, culture, and education center. They are governed by an all-volunteer board of directors and I couldn't be happier to have it as my home for my 2015 DIY Workshops!
