Cleveland Park

The history of Cleveland Park dates back to a land patent issued by Lord Baltimore in 1713 to Thomas Addison and James Stoddert. The original land grant stretched from Cleveland Park to Spring Valley.

In the 1740s the entire area was home to General Uriah Forest's 1000-acre farm. Wealthy Washingtonian’s caught wind of the area in the 1800s and used it as a place to build their summer homes. With no air conditioners, Cleveland Park provided those who could afford it a breezy relief from the hot D.C. summers.

With the development of streetcars, Cleveland Park was transformed from summer estates to suburban enclave. In 1888, Grover Cleveland - the community’s namesake – sold his “Oak View” estate, paving the way for new developments and growth. A couple of these original estates remain in Cleveland Park today, including the Tregaron Estate and the Twin Oaks Estate.

Quality of Life:

The architectural theme of Cleveland Park reflects an eclectic blend of Queen Anne, Mission Revival and Georgian Revival styles. Elegant single-family detached homes and townhomes lend an air of prestige to a community that has housed many prominent Americans. While the summer estates of the 19th century may have been developed, Cleveland Park continues to offer solitude and respite for those looking to leave their work downtown. Cleveland Park is, in essence, a small town in a big city.

Cleveland Park residents are a short walk to both the National Zoo and the National Cathedral. The Uptown Theater, built in 1936, stands as a modern relic of the Art Deco style. There are many restaurants that cater to a wide variety of tastes. Nearby Rock Creek Park hosts plenty of trails suited for running and biking.

Getting Around:

The Red line metro stop at Cleveland Park is the most direct way to get to the center of the community and downtown D.C. The station exits on Connecticut Avenue, where visitors can walk south to the National Zoo. Cleveland Park is also served by several bus stops that run along both Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenue. Woodley Park and Van Ness are also nearby.
