Comments :

I am really a child of the 60s and 70s and what an era - the whole culture was so vastly different from today. So my memories were of the simpler times, shopping with my mom at Hecht's and the other stores at Marlow Heights, hanging out at Iverson Mall, to going to the old Gem store and bowling alley on Branch Avenue near the DC line. One of my 1st jobs was working at the old PG Motor Hotel across from the shopping center. My sister worked at the Fleischman's Village cleaners. You could drive around many areas of the southern half of PG County in the late 60s and into the 70s and of course see the cars of that era and the food establishments. People knew their neighbors as well as the store keepers for years on end. Summers were nice and remember going to the drive in movie theaters including the one in Oxon Hill. My grandmother lived in SE DC and we would visit her on many Sundays. It felt like crime was almost non existent.

Comments :

Lived on Kirby Drive in Hillcrest Heights. Most of my memories are around playing in the woods, building forts and exploring along "Old Farmers Rd.". I remember the climbing ropes back in the quarry and the waterfalls on the crick. My closest friends were Patti and Bobbi Coleman who lived across the street. So many kids to play hide and go seek, kick the can. Wonderful summers, the Prince George County Fair. I lived in Hillcrest Heights 1963 - 1966. Such a very different world from today, I feel so fortunate to have been a child back then and enjoyed the freedom of those times.

I remember the arcade in the mall in the early 80s. I remember going to the movies there.. I saw Star Wars at that theater for the first time in like 1977. I remember the old Ihop, which is still there. I remember the old Ponderosa in Camp Springs in the 70s, and the old Andrews movie theater there as well.. My first job was working at Zayres as young teenager.. so many fond memories.. i miss those days

I remember Roy Roger's in the Mall and it was cafeteria style. My son now works at Roy Roger's here in Thurmont, Maryland. My grandparents lived down from Iverson Mall. Across from a shopping center, can't remember the name. But it had Woolworth on the end. When I was little me and granddad would walk over to bakery and get me 6 glazed donuts and then in afternoon would walk back over to get me Lemon Custard ice cream cone from Highs. My granddad would say scan the parking lot for coins. To this day I do that. I also remember a little restaurant right next to Hecht Company store on bottom level next to garden center of Hecht Company. All I can say is those were the Good Days. Many many GREAT memories I was always told that my cousins the Latimers owned all that land where the Mall and Shopping Center are before they sold it to them. Also remember my Dad went to bank on Friday night, Citizens Bank. Still remember their catchy radio tune. Sheehy Ford is where we bought our cars. Remember the big Cougar at dealership too.

Hi Chuck, I just joined your Marlow Heights group and in one of your post you asked, "Whatever happened to the Blocks?" In my opinion it was drugs, the summer of Woodstock and Vietnam. I went to Potomac in 70 and 71 (in 72, my parents sent me to live in Florida for my senior year). I lived at Marlow Madison apartments and went to Hillcrest Heights (4th & 5th) and Silver Hill elementary (6th), Benjamin Stoddert Jr. High (7th) and then John Hanson Jr. High (8th & 9th), when we moved to the Alpine apartments. In my opinion, things started changing when we saw the older guys, who we had looked up to and emulated, go from recreational drugs (pot) to Quaaludes, Reds and shooting heroin. Driving a friend to the Methadone clinic was an everyday occurrence back then. Things got really bad drug-wise in Hillcrest around 70-72 and I believe the younger ones, like myself, saw it as a dead-end street and we wanted out. I also believe that our parents, most of whom were blue collar workers, wanted us to go to college and create a better life for ourselves. Both of my parents worked outside the home and we lived in a rented apartment! After the summer of Woodstock (August 1969), when the infamous Life magazine issue came out and going forward to the Kent State shootings (May 1970) things really started changing. Literally overnight the Blocks and Collegians merged. We started listening to rock in addition to our beloved Motown. The school dress codes were dropped and we (girls and boys) were allowed to wear jeans (before girls had to wear dresses). With Viet Nam raging, going to anti-war protest in DC took center stage over rumbles/fights in front of Murphy's with baseball bats. We weren't really becoming hippies, but we'd found a new way of expressing ourselves and we started channeling our teenage angst in a different direction. The world changed and Hillcrest Heights and Marlow Heights changed with it (we were no longer an insulated little neighborhood). Personally, I believe we remember those times as the best years of our lives because it's the only time in our lives when our friends knew us for who we truly were and still accepted us. You can take the girl out of Hillcrest Heights, but you can't take the Hillcrest Heights out of the girl! Jan Hensley Bentley

Late summer evenings visiting on porches
Comments :

Marlow Heights was such a great place to grow up. We stayed outside as much as possible and neighbors were really neighbors. Summer evenings we visited from porch to porch...no one had A/C and it was cooler and more fun that way. We rode bikes and roller skated out on the street our doors were not locked with fear of crime ever. More memories....Woolworth spending allowance with a friend to share a strawberry sundae, Hot Shops on Sunday, Hobby Shop...The park making summer crafts with friends, walking home from school in the spring from Hillcrest Heights...it was the kind of childhood everyone should have!

Lived in the area from 1971 to 1996. I worked at the K Mart at Marlow Heights center 1975 to 76 and if you walked in there you most likely saw me as I was the assistant manager of the midway and often stood at the security podium at the front door... pumped gas at the Amaco across from the pizza hut and the kenneys shoe store just down from the fire dept on Woodyard road in clinton and its sister station down 301 where rt a and 401 joined up, just on the right across from the Sunoco station. K Mart was its' own little Payton Place.... we dated, loved and hated each other over the 1 1/2 years I was there and I am sure it didn't change! We went streaking down at Tantalon Estates near Ft Washington... did a lot of necking there,too. I remember in 72 when we marched from Decatur Jr High to Crossland HS to demonstrate against bussing... we burned a small bus in protest. I was on the bullhorn a few times to rouse up the crowd. Got a 3 day suspension from Decatur too! If you remember the Donkey Basketball Game in 76 at CHS then you saw me score the winning basket against the faculty! I was looking for a few good names on here, but this is cool to wander back in time.

Wow this site was a special find. I lived in Hillcrest Heights and Marlow Heights in the late sixties early seventies. My brother Mackie Jenkins met many friends that he kept even when he moved away. My first job was at Steak Ina Sack owned by Zack and his son and Ray and Eric were the cooks there. Ray was also of Arabian descent as the owner was and they found him a wife who became a waitress there so he could legally become a citizen. Wonder if they are still together. Oh lord or even alive since that was over 40 years ago. Kind if went back in time there for a minute. I use to hang out at Iverson Mall a lot and loved those pickles in a barrel at International Food store there I dated a few times Steve Youmans and one if those leather jacket cool guys name Murphy and forgot the other one. Lol. I went to Potomac High but have no memory of that school at all. I hung out at the bowling alley a few times and almost got in trouble there big time. Won't even go into that one. Lol. When I lived in Marlow Heights ran away from home to Michigan and when I came home to help my mother they were living in Hillctest Heights at that time. I use to miss my mountain home and would actually jump on St Barnabas Rd(i think that is the name)and hitch hike several times to go there which was a hundred miles away. Crazy now that I think of it. Don't think I liked the city much but I made a lot of good memories there with a few bad ones. Such is life. Thanks for the flashback

Great site! Lots of memories. Anyway, I now work a part-time retirement job delivering and picking up equipment for major construction sites. The job has me going everywhere. I went by, what used to be, Landover Mall. Gone! Evidently it got torn down around 2008 or so. Even the sears is gone. It was built in 1972! That brought back a lot of memories. The Farrells (sp?) Ice Cream shop, the 6 movie theaters, Spencers, etc. We would have birthday parties up there. Parents would dump us off and we'd run amuck then catch a movie. It got us out of the house for at least half the day. So, within my lifetime of 56 years, I've seen the Cap. Center go up and go down, along with Landover Mall. But, Iverson Mall and Marlow Heights are still there. Don't know what's inside, but it still stands. Has anyone been in Iverson Mall? Thanks (again) for the memories. Allen

I remember racing cars down Pennsylvania Avenue and going to the Hobby Shop in Marlow Heights. I knew some friends that lived in the apartments at Dennis Grove. I also remember driving to Raymond's Liquor in DC to buy beer because you only needed to be 18. When I turned 21 they lowered the age to 18 in Maryland. I couldn't win. On the way there we passed the Quonset Hut, some sort of nightclub.

So funny to have found this site,I have not thought about this place and those good times for quite awhile .Just a few thoughts anyone remember The old Eastover shopping center how about the old McDonalds on Livingston Rd ,Indian Head Hwy. Used to live right off Livingston Rd how about Jiffy sub shops you could roll up a 11pm and grab a steak and cheese.Someone mentoned SAMs car wash I worked there for a couple of months one of my first jobs lots of crazy times and people they used to pay you once a week in a little brown envolpe cash with the withholding taxes hand written on the envlope. The mall I think was the only indoor one around.We used to hang at the public library on Oxon Hill Rd great place to meet chicks.Man I wore out lots of shoes walking and hitchhiking around PG county, thanks again for this site it's funny how it's hard to remember everything. ,

I was googling for a phone number for Home Beneficial Life Insurance Company that had a district office in Marlow Heights and saw that someone mentioned they used to work there (but couldn't find then entry after getting on the page). Does anyone know if it's still in business or how to get hold of the company. I'm cleaning out my Dad's house and found that he had a life insurance policy from Home Beneficial but I don't have a way to get in touch with them to see if it's still valid. If anyone has any info, it will be appreciated (my e-mail is denisejhurd@gmail.com). My great aunt, Helen Garden, lived in Temple Hills from the mid-60's until her passing in 2008.

Graduated from Bowie HS 1968. BHS opened in 1967, so the class of 67 had been to Duvall HS in 66. We had a lot of blocks, and collegiates... but not too many mods. Hippies were about to break wide open. I was one.

I grew up in Oxon Run Hillcrest Heights and Marlow Heights the memories of those times are as if they happen yesterday hanging out with friends at the rec center or drug fair or the Iverson mall or where ever you happen to be at the time there was always something to do like pigging out at Steaknsack or Jr Hot Shoppes or going to the shopping center carnival each year or checking out the side walk sales in the spring it was always some thing different the friends you would get to know during the school years at Stoddert jr high and aer still friends with to this day though we have lost some over the years this is what I remember about Marlow Heights and it will stay with me always.

my father was the owner/ operator of Branch Auto Electric, near the old gem store. Age has taken its toll along with some memories, we have been trying to come up with the name of the old hotel/motel that was where the new wendys is, and in front of Speedy auto parts. It used to have large lions outside and hosted many bands. any idea? thanx

I loved spending Saturdays walking from my house on 27th Avenue to Iverson Mall and Marlow Heights shopping center. I attended Wendy Ward charm school and sold GS cookies outside of Roy Rogers in the mall. I learned to sew at the Singer store and bought all of my Girl Scout stuff at Hecht's. I loved walking through the 5 & dime--it was a great variety store. I used to make my father take me there every Tuesday so that I could get the latest lyric sheet from 98 Radio. Let's not even get started on the record stores!

Like one of the other folks that signed this Guest Book. I lived in the only PINK STONE HOUSE in Rogers Heights on the corner of 54th Avenue and Farragut Street. Yes it's still PINK. My family and some extended family lived in walking distance to our house so it was great that we could walk to see them, there were some we had to drive to and we did at least every other weekend.

Comments :

I was born in Oakland, California -- the daughter of a Capitol Heights boy and an Oakland girl. He was a soldier and she was a High School girl. They both worked in the cannery, met and fell in love. When I was one year old, Daddy received his Honorable Discharge out of the service (after serving in BOTH the Navy and Army)and he, my mama and I returned to Daddy's home in Capitol Heights. I grew up on the same street he was born on (61st Avenue) in the ONLY "PINK" house in "the Heights". We lived on the corner of "H"Street hill and 61st Avenue. I grew up knowing ALL my wonderful extended family, neighbors and all the kids around. We played together, went to school together, went to church together and even got in trouble together (he,he,he). We would stay outside till dark playing on the hills and in the woods riding bikes, catching frogs and tadpoles and just hanging around together. We would stay outside in the rain in the summertime and slide down the hills of clay on our butts; we would sleigh-ride down the "H" St hill during the snows (at night our parents would take over the hill, build a fire in a 55 gal drum at the top of the hill and sleigh away) whenever it snowed the police would always block-off the traffic from getting on the H St hill !! This was really great....The friendships we forged back then were so deep and lasting that some of us "kids" are still close (even if it has taken years to reconnect)and it is as if we've NEVER been apart !!! Amazing !!!
