About this title

Synopsis:

Located in the far northeastern edge of the city, Deanwood is one of Washington, D.C.’s oldest, consistently African American neighborhoods. Rooted in slave-based agriculture on white-owned land, the community began its transition from rural to urban development with the 1871 arrival of a branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad along its western boundary. This period after the Civil War offered blacks the opportunity to become landowners. Since this time, many notable Washingtonians of various ethnicities have been residents and frequent visitors to the area. In the early 1920s, it was home to Suburban Gardens, the only permanent amusement park ever to be housed within the city limits. Many of Deanwood’s families have lived in the community for generations, which makes it stable and close-knit.

About the Author:

In the 21st century, the rich history of this neighborhood is in danger of being lost and forgotten with the prevalence of land development. The Deanwood History Committee delved into several facets of the locale’s history and seeks to preserve the legacy and stories of the previous generations of residents who helped build and create the community that is now so desirable.
