Eckington is a NE Washington neighborhood found just south of the Prospect Hill and Glenwood Cemeteries, less than a mile Southeast of Howard University and about one mile north of the U.S. Capitol. The boundaries of Eckington are Rhode Island Avenue to the north, Florida Avenue to the south, North Capitol Street to the west, and Washington Metro’s Brentwood Yard to the east. Eckington includes the area known as Bloomingdale, a neighborhood that exists in name among residents but that is not officially recognized as a standalone neighborhood by D.C. government, planning or zoning.
Eckington’s history began as the country estate and land of Joseph Gales, Jr., owner of the National Intelligencer newspaper and Mayor of Washington, D.C. from 1827 to 1830. Gales purchased the land that is now Eckington in 1815, and in 1830 built a two-story house on the hilltop, at the point where Third and U Streets intersect today. Gales named the estate Eckington after The Village in England where he was born.
