Capitol Hill

Brimming with community spirit, Capitol Hill residents are passionate about everything their neighborhood has to offer: charming architecture, quaint shops, superb eateries and friendly cafes. The urbane blend of highly educated locals, Washington power players and young, energetic professionals creates an electric vitality attracting new residents and businesses every day.It’s largely a residential neighborhood composed predominantly of rowhouses of different stylistic varieties and periods. Side by side exists; early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses, and the late 19th century press brick rowhouses with their often whimsical decorative elements combining Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Eastlakian motifs.
