Washington Heights Historic District
The Washington Heights Historic District is located in the Northwest Quadrant of Washington DC in Adams Morgan. Washington Heights was designated a historic district in 2006 and includes 347 contributing properties.
Washington Heights was developed in the 1890s when electric street cars were built on both 18th Street and Columbia Road. Early 20th-century row houses are the dominant home architecture in the neighborhood, which also has several turn-of the-century condo and co-op developments.
The boundaries of the Washington Heights Historic District include Columbia Road and 19th Street to the west, Florida Avenue to the south, and 18th Street to the east.
