Logan Circle

One of the trendiest neighborhoods of DC.

Welcome to Logan Circle

One of the trendiest neighborhoods of DC
Named after the neighborhood’s southern end’s traffic roundabout featuring historic townhouses and a circular park home to a statue of John Logan, Logan Circle is located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. It is a primarily residential neighborhood with two historic districts and plenty of historic landmarks. The area was originally known as Iowa Circle but was renamed by Congress in 1930 to honor John A. Logan, a Civil War hero and Illinois senator.

Logan Circle is full of beautiful apartments, condos, and townhomes, and this is one of DC’s most highly-coveted communities, often resulting in a steeper price point. Many of the buildings and homes in this area are in the Victorian style and had been designed by the architect Glenn Brown. Several of Brown’s homes are featured on the National Register of Historic Places.

There is a perfect blend of sleek modernity and old-fashioned charm that comes from the beautiful and historic architecture. With much history also made in the area, there is an air of importance and high esteem.
