Logan Circle is a traffic circle, neighborhood, and historic district in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. The primarily residential neighborhood includes two historic districts, properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and sites designated D.C. Historic Landmarks. It is the only major circle downtown that remains entirely residential. Originally known as Iowa Circle, the park was renamed by Congress in 1930 in honor of John A. Logan, Commander of the Army of the Tennessee during the Civil War, Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, and Representative and Senator for the state of Illinois, who lived at 4 Logan Circle from 1885 until his death the following year. During the 2000’s, the commercial corridors surrounding Logan Circle underwent significant revitalization, and today, the neighborhood is home to a variety of retailers, restaurants, art galleries, live theater and nightlife.
