H Street Corridor

City of Washington, District of Columbia, DC

Washington, DC's H Street NE [†] corridor was built about 1849. Streetcars followed 23 years later, creating a successful business center and encouraging development in the neighborhood. They ran up and down the street for exactly 100 years until buses replaced them in 1949. Throughout the early and mid-1900s, the area was one of the city's commercial hubs, known for its art and dining scene, much like it is now. It was even lined with department stores, including DC's first Sears. [www.washington.org, accessed Marh, 2022]
