The Washington Directory showing the Name, Occupation, and Residence, of each Head of a Family and Person in Business, December, 1822.
The first General Directory for the City of Washington, is herewith presented to the public, in the hope that it will be found, what the compiler has spared no pains in endeavouring to make it, worthy of their patronage.
To those unacquainted with the plan of the city, it may be of service to state, that all the streets running east and west, are designated by letters of the alphabet, and by the word north or south, according as they are situated north or south of the capitol, which is the dividing point; as, A street north, and A street south, which are the first streets north and south of the capitol. The streets running north and south, are designated numerically, and by the word east or west, according to their positions with respect to the capitol; as, First street east, and First street west.

This page features a historical book or original document that was transcribed during 2012 as part of the Genealogy Today Subscription Data collection -- a project focused on capturing details about the lives of your ancestors, from their early years in school, through college and then into their careers, hobbies and group activities.
