U Street’s Rich Cultural History
The U Street Corridor encompasses an area that is rich in Washington history and culture. Primarily developed between the early 1860s and the turn of the 20th century, the majority of the neighborhood is now historically protected as the Greater U Street Historic District. The U Street Corridor also includes a portion of the next-door Shaw neighborhood. U Street was an epicenter of African American culture from early one. The community began its development during the Civil War era. Today there are multiple landmarks dedicated to African American soldiers and sailors, including the African American Civil War Memorial at the corner of Vermont Avenue, 10th Street and U Street NW and a museum by the same name across the street.
The founding of Howard University in 1867 was a seminal event in the neighborhood. The all-black school was home to countless African American pioneers in the fields of literature, science, medicine, architecture, business and performing arts. During the early 1900s through to the middle of the 20th century, U Street was also known for its vibrant jazz, blues and musical theatre scene. Dubbed “Black Broadway,” the corridor was home to famous artists such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald.
U Street Today
Today, the U Street Corridor is once again a thriving beacon of entertainment. Famous performing arts venues from the “Black Broadway” era such as the Lincoln Theatre and Howard Theatre have been restored and renovated, and are once again showcasing top talent. There’s plenty of other bars, clubs, restaurants, coffee houses, bookstores, movie theaters and boutique retailers along this energetic urban corridor. Condos and homes for sale in the U Street area reflect a mixture of many eras with historic buildings side-by-side with new modern structures and industrial-style lofts.
