From the vast estates of the mid-1800s to the rowhouses built at the end of the 19th century, from Charles Lindberghs balcony address at the Patterson House to the various political rallies staged in the urban neighborhood, Washington, D.C.s Dupont Circle has for many years been at the center of a rich history. Boasting a fascinating heritage of architectural, cultural, and political activity and diversity, the Dupont Circle neighborhood has played a part in the great story of the capital city and has witnessed many of the people and events that have challenged our national community. Following the areas use as a Civil War encampment, Dupont Circle slowly began to develop a more urban character. At the neighborhoods social zenith in the early 1900s, gracious mansions surrounding the circle hosted lavish parties attended by diplomats, presidents, and wealthy socialites. The photographs in this informative visual history capture the elegant homes that were later replaced by office buildings and the fashionable era that was soon to fade. Rare World War II images of former mansions used as rooming houses bring readers into the 20th century, along with the early 1960s photographs of gay activists who gathered at the circle and began the modern restoration of the neighborhood.
