Logan Circle is conveniently located, just north of the National Mall, and six blocks east of Dupont Circle. Logan is known for the magnificent Victorian row houses that ring this, the last surviving residential circle under the original L'Enfant Plan. If you decide to stay here, you'll be able to walk to the White House, Washington Convention Center, Verizon Center, Smithsonian Museums, K Street Corridor, a number of our treasured National Monuments, and many more sites of interest. Dining options near our Logan Circle rentals are many and varied, with a wide selection of American and ethnic restaurants on Fourteenth Street and after dinner there are several clubs as well as The Studio Theater for your entertainment. If you'll be staying in one of our vacation rental apartments, there's a Fresh Fields/Whole Foods gourmet grocery store in the neighborhood to keep your kitchen stocked. Getting to other parts of the city is a snap, with Metro access just five or six blocks away. Major bus routes (52, 53, 54, G2) to the National Monuments, the Smithsonian Museums, White House, and Georgetown are just one block from the Circle as well.
Conceived under Pierre Charles L'Enfant's 1791 plan for the city of Washington, Logan Circle was originally designed as a triangle. Its shape was subsequently altered, and by 1818 it was known as Iowa Circle. Located one mile north and rast of the White House, Iowa Circle was one part of an inverted pyramid with the White House at the bottom point, and what is now Dupont Circle to the northwest. Connecticut and Vermont Avenues and P Street from the perimeter of the pyramid.
By the 1870s, Iowa Circle had become one of The District's most desirable residential locations. Most of the homes on The Circle (and in the roughly eight square block area that constitutes the Logan Circle neighborhood) were constructed in the 25 years from 1875 to 1900. Today, they represent the most complete collection of late Victorian and Richardsonian architecture in the city. Some of the other homes in the neighborhood represent the Second Empire, High Victorian Gothic, Romanesque Revival and New Orleans styles. Logan Circle is, not surprisingly, a designated historic district in the city.
