Rosedale, which lies within these boundaries, is a distinctive neighborhood that developed over the late 19th and early 20th centuries, just a stone’s throw from the H Street commercial corridor Find out who developed the neighborhood and learn about the different types of architecture and buildings from knowledgeable architectural historians.
