History and/or Description of Community

This neighborhood, outside the original boundaries of Washington City, was originally part a 30-acre farmland estate, called Metropolis View. In 1863, Salmon P. Chase, then U.S. Treasury Secretary under Abraham Lincoln, purchased the estate and another 20 acres of land nearby. He built a mansion and renamed the newly expanded estate Edgewood. The mansion was located at what is now the corner of Edgewood and Fourth Streets, NE. In the early 1900s, the house belonged to the St. Vincent's Orphanage Asylum and Catholic School. The city eventually gained possession of the estate and began developing it as an urban neighborhood in the 1950s.
