Summary

Significance: This avenue remains faithful to its design on the L'Enfant and Ellicott city plans. The reservations on the avenue are largely intact since their official recognition in 1894, and several contain markers and fences dating to the 1890s. Most of the avenue from Second Street, SE to 14th Street, NE is within the National Register Capitol Hill Historic District.
