The Wyoming: Historic Best Addresses Building
The historic Wyoming, located at 2022 Columbia Road, NW, in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, is a splendid Beaux-Arts luxury condo building that has had its share of high voltage Washingtonian elite residents and enjoys a coveted list of building amenities within walking distance of the Dupont Circle Metro Station on the Red Line. The grand and gracious Wyoming is one of the contributing properties making up the Washington Heights Historic District, and has been named a Washington “Best Address” in much sought-after Adams Morgan/Kalorama. The luxury building is also in a neighborhood of historical charm that includes entertainment venues for live music, independent shops, restaurants, parks and a Sunday farmer’s market replete with local produce, baked goods and fresh flowers. Residents walk to Georgetown, and the area has plenty of bike lanes. Rock Creek Park runs along the northern side with walking paths, dog parks, and horse trails. It is in close proximity to Reagan National Airport, The Kennedy Center and the White House.
The early 20th century 7-story condo building includes 108 luxurious units. The Wyoming, built in 1905, has two wings. It has been home to TV correspondent George Stephanopoulos, Dwight D. Eisenhower and his wife Mamie, author and activist Betty Friedan, as well as Senators and House members. The Wyoming, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has an ornate beaux-arts lobby that was featured in the Clint Eastwood movie, “Absolute Power.” The building was constructed in three stages and completed in 1910 by architect B. Stanley Simmons and developer Lester A. Barr. The elegant, marble lobby is adjoined by a reception room and a catering kitchen available to residents, and a private rear garden with children’s play area.
