Dupont Circle is a historic district in Northwest Washington, D.C. The neighborhood is bounded approximately by 16th Street NW to the east, 22nd Street NW to the west, M Street NW to the south, and Florida Avenue NW to the north. Dupont Circle is located in the “Old City” of Washington, D.C. — the area planned by architect Pierre Charles L’Enfant — but remained largely undeveloped until after the American Civil War. The area that now constitutes Dupont Circle was once home to a brickyard and slaughterhouse but is now a trendy location with coffeehouses, restaurants, bars, and upscale retail stores. The area is also known for it’s rowhouses, which were primarily built before 1900 and feature variations on the Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque revival styles. Dupont Circle is served by the Washington Metro Red Line at the Dupont Circle Metro station.
