Last night, the city council passed a motion to have city staff research the possibility of changing the name of Magruder Park because William Magruder included language in the deed of the park that the park be used by whites only. Part of the research included if the deed to the park would revert back to the Magruder estate if the name were changed.
What do you think? Should Hyattsville change the name of the park? What should it be changed to? Comment below.
