Capitol Hill is an historic neighborhood located in the Southeast and Northeast quadrants of Washington, DC. About 35,000 Washingtonians make their home in the two square miles of the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
In the early years of the District, members of Congress stayed in boarding houses on Capitol Hill rather than establish a permanent residence in Washington. Today, gentrification has spread throughout the neighborhood and has transformed it into an upscale and exclusive area. It is estimated that nearly one third of the members of Congress now make their home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Read more about Capitol Hill real estate.
