Below, we’ve assembled images from 100+ years of Rosemont history. Additionally, in 2009 the Washington Post Magazine published a set of photos by Claudia Smigrod, comparing images that she had taken of Rosemont children in the late 1980s with the same individuals in the late 2000s, and our Facebook page includes photos of recent events.

 


Fourth of July

Rosemont’s annual Fourth of July celebration at the Maury School – a community tradition since the mid-1960s – frequently is given photo coverage in the Alexandria Gazette-Packet. Recent coverage from the newspaper’s website follows; older photos are included in the archives below:
