Day 16

Forest Hills (July 18)

We continued our exploration of Forest Hills on a hot muggy evening.

Occasionally we have come across houses that look to have started life looking the same but have grown apart as they have grown older. Here are a couple of examples.

We were delighted to come across some mid-century modern houses, a personal architectural favorite style of ours.

Another in our “one of these houses is not like the others” series is this house with what appeared to be a rooftop atrium and an appealing checkerboard pattern.

We were surprised to find this little chapel nestled in beside a large old house on a quiet residential street.

From what we can determine through an internet search, the chapel is for the Convent of Divine Providence of the Oblate Sisters of the Most Holy Eucharist. The Convent resides in the large house next to the Chapel. The Oblate Sisters are, apparently, a small contemplative order from Mexico with convents in Massachusetts as well as the District.
