Great Site ! I remember it all. I will email you with some additional info. Dusty Martin - 77 Potomac Sr. High
Lived in the area from 1958 to 1977.
I remember my father buying my first real baseball glove (FRANKLIN), I believe, at the Hecht Co. in Marlow Heights. Must have been '63 or '64. Also remember going to the cafeteria in the 60's on Mother's Day.
Wonderful site. Brought back so many great memories.
Chuck, Thank you for allowing us all to share memories of Marlow Heights thru your website. Although I was very young (age 2 to 6) I remember living in Marlow Heights Apartments located behind the Shopping Center. My fondest memories include watching our groceries at Safeway being rolled in carts (on steel wheels) to the outside of the store. I also remember the Red Barn Restaraunt and Iverson Mall (especially at Christmas). I attended Temple Hills Baptist Church back then (Rev. Merrill). I really miss my friends at THBC. Thank you again for all your wonderful work on your website!!
What a great site!!! A real trip down memory lane. I see you had the Red Barn... remember Heap Big Beef? Right next door.
Hello Chuck! Finally got around to signing your book...we left Forestville when I was 11 and moved to St. Mary's County (and I see so many of us ended up down here!). I have great memories of when Iverson Mall was first built and it was so cool to walk above the traffic and watch the cars go under! We used to go to Steak in a Sack, too, I still try to eat there whenever I find myself up in that area. They used to have those little jukeboxes at the tables and my Dad would let us pick our own songs. Their food is as good as ever and I think the place is still owved by the same family. And, of course, we always went to the Marlow Theatre, or sometimes to the drive-in in Oxon Hill when the weather was nice. Hope your search is panning out for you, talk to you later! Denise
I lived in Marlow Heights from the time I born until I was around 5. I remember a lot of the stuff though especially the Red Barn and the 7-eleven. We went to Iverson mall a bunch even after we moved to Charles County. I don't remember the name of the apartments I lived in just that they were pink.
Anyone here remember the Rectors restaurant that was next to the Giant Food store? Our waitress use to be Millie. Also remember all the great New Years Eve parties. Such fond memories... (o: Shopped usually at Lerners and Hechts, and the Woolworth store. Remember the carnivals in the parking lot where the Burger King is now?
Great Web Site... loved the stroll down memory lane.
