Village in the City
— Mount Pleasant Heritage Trail —Beginning in the late 1950s, the community leadership of Mount Pleasant changed from the exclusive Citizens Association to an array of new players. Mount Pleasant Neighbors Association was the first alternative group. It presented festivals and grappled with local poverty. The group brought Barney Neighborhood House - a social services agency - here to 3118 16th Street after urban renewal forced it out of Southwest Washington. Neighbors' Consejo another social services agency, succeeded Barney House in 2000.
