swampoodle park - nomaPhoto: NoMa Parks Foundation

Much more than just an unusual name, Swampoodle is a historic neighborhood with Irish roots. Originally settled by scores of Irish immigrants in the mid 1800s, its said Swampoodle gained its namesake generations ago from a combination of the words “swamp” and “puddle”.

Built up over the former Tiber River, the neighborhood was often marked at the time by standing water and marshy conditions. All these years later the name remains, although it’s not likely that everyone in DC remembers it.

That’s because Swampoodle is now part of the rebranded NoMA community. The opening of Union Station in the early 1900s wiped out many of the old homes that once stood in the area, causing many residents to move away.

logan circle - washington dc

Largely regarded as one of DC’s trendiest neighborhoods, the Logan Circle of today is far different than its past. This walkable neighborhood was mostly just farmland and wilderness prior to the mid-1800s.

The end of the 19th century, however, ushered in some Victorian-style homes that still stand along neighborhood streets today. By the early 20th century, Logan Circle had transformed itself once again, this time by taking on the moniker “Automobile Row”.

Logan Circle was best known at that time for its many car showrooms and garages, especially those lining 14th street. The neighborhood gained its current namesake in the early 1930s with a nod to a former Civil War commander with the last name of Logan.

Decades later, unrest in Logan Circle
