Dupont Circle, From Old to New
Dupont Circle has long been one of Washington’s elite neighborhoods, from the early days of the DC ruling class to the present. Once farmland with a few estates, the area was purchased by a group of businessmen and politicians known as the “California Syndicate” in the 1860s. About a decade later, the famed traffic circle was constructed, first as Pacific Circle and subsequently renamed Dupont Circle, after Rear Admiral Samuel Francis Dupont.
The circle was built at the epicenter of three wide diagonal roadways: Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hamphire Avenues, thus resembling the spokes on a wheel. Also surrounding the circle is a grid of smaller streets that are numbered running north-south and alphabetical running east-west. This is the template of the District as imagined by its original architect, Pierre L’Enfant, who sought an organized layout of streets along with public squares and parks.
The first big residential development boom in Dupont Circle occurred from around 1870 to the early 1900s. Large mansions once lined the widest avenues, although many were razed for redevelopment prior to the establishment of the Dupont Circle Historic District. That said, numerous old properties still exist, including row houses and former apartment buildings that have gone condo, as well as a sprinkling of the palatial estates from a century or more ago. Some of those grand homes now serve as embassies.
But reconstruction has also played an important part. Dumbarton Place is a good example—a commercial building that replaced an antique, has now itself been reimagined as upscale condos for sale. Thus, the neighborhood is a prime example of the evolution of the city, even as historical status has provided a firewall against rampant overdevelopment.
Those living in Dupont Circle take the neighborhood’s gradually changing skin as a fact of everyday life—albeit with less or more enthusiasm given the individual. And, those who come to visit are invariably awestruck by the history, the architecture and the amazing amalgamation of top bars, restaurants, indie shops, museums, galleries, yoga studios, bookstores and the circle itself with its interior fountain and benches—a very good place to sit and watch the world go by.

But walking, bicycling, skateboarding and electric scooters are also a thing is this neighborhood. Dupont Circle enjoys an incredibly high Walk Score of 98 and a Bike Score of 95!
