Meridian Hill has grown from agricultural land on the outskirts of Washington, DC, to an international and residential hub of the capital city. It has been inhabited by many interesting characters and claims numerous historic buildings. This web resource has been created to compile primary and secondary sources on the history of Meridian Hill and serve as a guide to researchers of the neighborhood’s formation.
This project was completed with a DC Community Heritage Grant from the Humanities Council of Washington, DC.
