After multiple protests, particularly by Howard University students in the 1880s, the fences were torn down and the neighborhood became more diverse.
In the 1940s it was known as a central location for African-American elites to live and today is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city. Murals throughout the community depict its history. With a beautiful historic district, close proximity to the Shaw-Howard University Metro Station, and a number of D.C.’s hottest neighborhoods including Bloomingdale, Shaw and Eckington; LeDroit Park homes for sale have strong appeal for discerning home buyers looking for an exclusive residence.

Living in Historic LeDroit Park Homes
The LeDroit Park Civic Association is an incredibly active organization helping to preserve the neighborhood and organize neighborhood events. The neighborhood is very invested in its community- when the Gage-Eckington Elementary School closed; residents lobbied for the city to tear it down and convert it into a park, which opened in 2011 as The Park at LeDroit. The park contains a playground, exercise equipment, a dog park, and the Common Good City Farm, an urban agriculture education center and community garden. Recently, the owners of Vinoteca wine bar opened the Royal, a new restaurant which serves as a coffee shop during the day and a cocktail bar at night.
Popular attractions in the area include:
- Howard University
- Howard Theater
- The neighboring community of Bloomingdale
