You probably think you know all about Columbia Heights, but this DC neighborhood has more than a few surprises up its sleeve. 

How it began

Once considered mostly farmland, the Columbia Heights of generations ago looked very different than it does today. Around the late 1800s, the neighborhood was named after nearby Columbian College. It’s since moved to Foggy Bottom and we now know the college as George Washington University. 

History of activism

The neighborhood has a long history of activism. During the Civil Rights Movement, Dr Martin Luther King Jr was said to have commonly visited the area. Following his assassination, rioting erupted along 14th and U Streets.

Columbia Heights once served as home to DC’s first African American

 Grace Church - 350 9th St SE

If the thought of living in a more unique setting appeals to you, consider one of the many DC properties that offer up the opportunity to live in a former house of worship. One of the first such conversions in DC is now referred to as The Grace Church Condominiums. This Capitol Hill property changed over in the late 1980s, but the trend has really started to take off in more recent years. While many major cities are left with old industrial buildings to transform into loft-style condos, DC is more unique.

The district’s overflowing with hundreds of churches. Instead of tearing down some of the old, unused church buildings in the area, developers are repurposing some of them into new residential buildings.

With a large park, a mix of housing, restaurants and retailers, Columbia Heights has it all. This trendy neighborhood has changed substantially since its beginnings, and it continues to grow in popularity, especially in more recent years.

Once home to a university, horse track and farmland, Columbia Heights grew to become a Washington streetcar suburb. Riots in the 1960s, however, took a heavy toll on this once fashionable community. It took decades more for the neighborhood to finally spring back to life.

When a major Metro station opened up in the late 1990s, it wasn’t long before developers started moving in to Columbia Heights. You’ll now find a mix of national retail stores plus mom-and-pop shops in the neighborhood.

meridian hill park - washington dc

While its known widely by two different names, Meridian Hill Park is a true gem of the DC area. Right in the middle of DC, the park sits high up on a hill, with 12 full acres of shaded walkways, landscaped lawns and a majestic fountain.

The urban park is actually part of the Columbia Heights neighborhood, but neighbors of nearby Adams Morgan also delight in close proximity to the park. Designed and constructed in the early 1900s, the National Park Service maintains the location, found just to the north of the White House.
