DC Urban farm, 1940

I'm going through some papers and I came across a snapshot of census records. Apparently in 1940 there were 65 people living on farms (or 65 farms the table is hard to interpret). Considering that not every mile of the District was developed, that there were some parts of the District used for agriculture.

when I was born @ Columbia Hospital for Women in 1971 part of the birth certificate questionaire still included the question "is residence part of a farm"
