History of Eckington

Named for the 18th-century country estate that preceded it, Eckington is a late 19thcentury and early 20th-century neighborhood in the near northeast section of Washington, DC Currently bounded by Florida Avenue on the south, Rhode Island Avenue on the north, North Capitol Street on the west and the railroad tracks on the east, the well-defined neighborhood actually comprises a series of older residential subdivisions, including High View, McLaughlin’s Subdivision, Eckington, West Eckington and Center Eckington.

The plat included 23 blocks or squares divided into large-sized 50’ x 100’ suburban sized lots, located to either side of the B&O Railroad tracks and bounded on the east by Brentwood Road and on the west by Eckington Place, with two of the blocks located south of New York Avenue.

The most prominent of these, historically, was Eckington, a residential subdivision platted in 1887 and developed by real estate entrepreneur George Truesdell. Truesdell laid the streets and provided the initial infrastructure, including most notably the Eckington and Soldier’s Home streetcar line. The streetcar not only provided the rapid transportation that was vital for any 19th century suburban community, but it also allowed for electric lights for the streets and individual residences, a sought-after amenity for any new neighborhood. 

 

The successful comingling of a residential neighborhood and industrial corridor is unique to this city and fully characterizes the Eckington neighborhood today.
