Mosey around this historic Route One neighborhood and you'll see some beautiful Victorian houses as well as this house here, which functioned as a 2-room schoolhouse from the 1920s to 1958: 

According to Preservation Maryland, this house is "one of the best surviving examples of a 1920s schoolhouse in Prince George's County."

❓ So, which Route One town does this house call home? Play along in the comments below or over on Route One Fun's Facebook Page and/or Instagram page!

*The house is now a lovely - private - residence so don't go by expecting a tour! 😄

Habit Burger Opens July 11th at Riverdale Park Station

I was all ready and excited to break the news about Habit Burger opening at Riverdale Park Station on July 11th when I learned that the Riverdale Park Station Blog had already made the announcement this evening...! Well done, neighbor, well done. 😁

Last week, I accosted / caught up with Tony from Habit, who shared the opening date information and the news that they'll be training early July to prep for the grand opening.

Greetings, Tony!
I've never had a Habit Burger but have heard them compared to the quality and caliber of In-N-Out Burger. It is not my intention to start a burger war here, though if you have an opinion on the matter, have at it in the comments below!

Bella Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa Coming to Riverdale Park Station

There's a fancy new nail salon coming to Riverdale Park Station! Soon enough, you can get your nails did pre or post-workout / grocery shopping / fountain frolicking at Bella Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa. 💅

I'm not exactly sure what a "lifestyle" nail salon place & spa may deliver, and my imagination is running a little wild, but a look at the Bella Nail Salon in Annapolis shows a list of competitively priced services you typically find at a nice nail salon, including manicures, pedicures, waxing, massages, skin care, eyelash extensions, etc.

Excited for all the new places opening up at Riverdale Park Station!  Speaking of, have you checked out the Riverdale Park Station Blog yet?  It's run by a local dude who lives in one of the townhomes in RPS. He chronicles why he and his family chose RPS and gets really into the weeds (in an interesting way) about the buildings and development there. 👏 Check it out!
