June 25, 2016

The Great Republic, a Washington, D.C. and The Broadmoor, CO based retail establishment, has been named one of 22 vendors that will be featured in the Republican National Convention’s Freedom Marketplace. 

 

According to a recent announcement made by the Republican National Convention Committee, The Freedom Marketplace is new to this year’s Convention and will give delegates and guests the opportunity to find unique mementos to bring the Convention home. Vendors from across the country will be in Cleveland with a wide array of products for Marketplace visitors.

 

“We’re thrilled to be able to showcase The Great Republic to nearly 50,000 visitors that are expected in the Cleveland area for the event, including delegates, alternate delegates, members of the media and other guests,” says founder and owner Eddie Papczun.  “The Great Republic celebrates the United States in antique, one-of-a-kind offerings as well as made-in-America handcrafted goods, designed for the individual who puts a premium on unquestioned authenticity and quality of craftsmanship when investing in an exceptional piece of history or handcrafted item--either for themselves or as a gift.”

Roose. Because it was a planned city, the early maps of Washington, DC have always been a particularly accurate way to track the development of the nation’s capital. This map helps us explore the markers of a growing population in postbellum DC, and the projects and infrastructure changes, specifically the 1881 reclamation of the Potomac Flats, that were necessary for the Nation's Capital to thrive.
