Hyattsville, MD, Prints

Franklins Brewery & Pub, Hyattsville, MDHyattsville, one of the oldest towns in Prince George’s county, sits at the head of the Anacostia River. Its historic district features more than 1,000 buildings. Styles range from Victorian to Colonial Revival, and include houses built under the Arts and Crafts influence.

Walk through the historic commercial area today to discover lots of neat artsy stores, restaurants and boutiques. Don’t forget to stop at Vigilante for a great cup of coffee and pastry or Pyramid Atlantic, where you can take art classes or see the latest exhibition.

The town started to flourish after the Civil War with the break up of plantations and a booming federal government. A small number of immigrants and African-Americans lived here from its earliest days. By 1893, the town had 170 houses, four churches, a fire department, grocers, butchers, livery stable, an electric streetcar, telephone and electric service.

In 1908, the Carter Motor Company factory was established and attracted service stations, garages, and dealerships. By 1916, the town had grown to more than 6,000 people. Many of them commuted to Washington, DC. A treat could be to go to the neighboring Bladensburg Spa Springs resort, which featured “healing waters.”

We have captured the new and the old in our colorful renditions of a line of 19th century stores and buildings that run along Route 1. Take a look at Franklin’s or the old Hyattsville Hardware Company.  We start with a digital photo and turn it into a painting. Afterwards, we letterpress “Hyattsville” beneath each portrait; thus, we imprint the name of the town into the paper itself. Each print is an unframed, limited edition of three copies made with archival inks and acid free paper.
