Anacostia Neighborhood Information

To put this into better perspective, a little history is in order. Anacostia was developed in the mid-1800s as “Uniontown”—a blue collar suburb geared toward workers who were employed on the other side of the river at the Navy Yard—once the military’s largest shipbuilding facility. Residences tended to be modest—wood-framed bungalows and Italianate-styles, along with a few larger Queen Anne homes, brick row houses and low-rise apartment buildings.

In time, the blue-collar community took on the name of its adjacent river. Time also brought changes to the shipyard which switched to the manufacture of armaments and gradually rolled back those operations altogether—downsizing into administrative offices. By then, the river had become fouled with industrial pollution and the surrounding area on both sides had fallen into decline and decay.

More About Today's Anacostia Community in Washington DC

In more recent years, the Navy Yard has gone through a massive revitalization process, including a Superfund river cleanup and lots of upscale commercial development. As for Anacostia itself, a transformative process has been slower, but is evident nonetheless. A lot of the underpriced Craftsman cottage fixer-uppers have been snapped up and the downtown Historic District features numerous renovated storefronts. New developments include the announcement that a Busboys and Poets will soon be opening on Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE.

 A Closer Look at Real Estate in Anacostia

And for those looking to move into an already-renovated home, you’ll still spend considerably less than you would on the other side of the river.
