Adams Morgan derived its names from the desegregation of two elementary schools in 1955. One was named Thomas P. Morgan and the other, John Q Adams. A group of residents worked with city officals to organize and construct a new elemmtary school and recreational complex which became a community hub. The facility was named “the Marie H. Reed Learning Center.” To this day Adams Morgan continues to live up to its multicultural upbringing.
