LeDroit Park is a neighborhood in the Northwest Quadrant of Washington, DC located directly Southeast of Howard University. The neighborhood was developed in the 1870s as one of the Districts first "suburbs" and its initial single-family homes were designed by architect James McGill. The neighborhood was positioned as a romantic enclave and to attract new home buyers, the developers planted significant displays of flora and fauna.
As the LeDroit Park neighborhood grew in the 1880s and 1890s, brick and framed row houses were also constructed in the neighborhood. While initially a segregated white-only community, by World War One LeDroit Park was home to many of the Districts influential African Americans. In 1974, LeDroit Park was recognized as a historic district and awarded a place on the National Register of Historic Places.
The LeDroit Park neighborhood is bounded by W Street to the north, Georgia Avenue to the west, Rhode Island Avenue and Florida Avenue to the south and Second Street to the east. Neighborhoods bordering LeDroit Park include Pleasant Plains to the northwest, Shaw to the southwest, McMillan Reservoir to the north, Bloomingdale to the east and Truxton Circle to the southeast. LeDroit Park is served by the Shaw-Howard U Metro Station.
