More About Deanwood
Deanwood was once one of DC’s earliest African-American communities and many of the homes available today were built by African-American craftsman. Residents include a mix of families who have lived in the area for generations as well as newcomers looking for affordable properties with convenient commutes to the City.
Located south of I-295, Deanwood is served by the Deanwood Metro Station on the Silver and Orange Lines. The community is bounded by Eastern Avenue to the east, Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue to the southwest and Division Avenue to the southeast.
