The LeDroit Park House and Garden Tour will showcase the neighborhood’s unique architecture, history, and diversity, from its time as an exclusive enclave, through its heyday as a center of African American intelligentsia, to the present day. Visitors will enjoy the interiors and gardens of Victorian homes, rowhouses and contemporary developments.
LeDroit Park was originally designed as one of the first suburbs of DC and it retains a tranquil character while remaining close to the bustle of U Street. A historic neighborhood since 1974, LeDroit features majestic, fully detached Victorian houses alongside classic rowhouses and more contemporary developments.
This inaugural LeDroit Park House and Garden Tour is a fundraiser for the Civic Association, which itself dates back to the 19th Century. The proceeds will benefit neighborhood activities that are sponsored by the Civic Association including beautification projects, landscaping of the arch, seasonal clean-ups, and other community needs.
