Cleveland Park is located in northwest Washington, D.C., bound by Rodman and Tillman streets on the north, Rock Creek Park on the east, Klingle and Woodley Roads on the west, and Wisconsin Avenue on the south. This residential neighborhood is home to a large population as well as the Washington National Cathedral and the historic Art Deco Uptown Theater.
Named after President Grover Cleveland who purchased a farmhouse there, Cleveland Park was once a popular community filled with farmhouses and summer estates owned by government officials. With the expansion of the streetcar line through the neighborhood, Cleveland Park transformed into a thriving suburb for the nation’s capital. Many homes were developed in the 19th Century by individual architects and builders in various architectural design styles and revivals – Queen Anne, Georgian, Mission and Tutor.
Cleveland Park also has some retail stores and restaurants surrounding the WMATA Metrorail’s red line station located along Connecticut Avenue NW.
