The Logan Circle Historic District possesses a rich history. In 1791, Pierre L'Enfant selected this elevated terrain for the intersection of two of his grand avenues. Despite its prominent location, the area failed to attract development until after the Civil War when influential residents, such as Senator John A. Logan of Illinois, helped create one of the city's fashionable, exclusive neighborhoods.

Known during the early 20th century as Iowa Circle, the community flourished as a the social, intellectual and artistic hub of Black Washington. In 1930, Congress officially renamed Iowa Circle, Logan Circle. The 20th century also delivered economic depression that contributed to the neighborhood's decline. In the 21st century, this vibrant historic district thrives as the city's best-preserved example of late 19th century Victorian architecture clustered around on of L'Enfant's great open spaces.
