Yes there really was a gang called the Marlow Manglers. Myself and two friends were acosted by them across from the 7-11 in the bowling alley parking lot. My mom was the manager at the Marlow Theatre from 1977 - 1986 when she retired. Marlow Heights was the best place ever to grow up for me.

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.

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!!

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
