Town of Riverdale ParkThe Civil War (1861-1865) transformed Washington, DC, from a quiet southern town to a constantly expanding metropolis fueled by a growing federal bureaucracy and the many businesses that benefited from the wealth and markets that the nation's capital produced. Growth-particularly the demand for affordable housing in an escalating real estate market-led entrepreneurs to the surrounding countryside, still largely agricultural in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Developers could subdivide land and build affordable houses away from the bustling and expensive city.
