Takoma DC

Neighborhood Info:

Takoma is the one of the northernmost areas in D.C. and shares its name with Takoma Park, Maryland, which is just across the border. The neighborhood was originally planned in the 1880s as a small village that offered escape from the nation’s capital to the south. Many of the original Victorian homes have been carefully preserved. A small central district has seen the establishment of a handful of larger apartment and condo buildings as well as unique shops, restaurants, and cafes. The area is located on the Red Line at Takoma Station.
