Petworth was originally the site of two country estates in Washington County, D.C.: Petworth, the 204-acre estate of Colonel John Taylor, and the Marshall Brown Estate, the 183-acre estate that was later acquired by the Taylor family.

The original city plan did not incorporate the estates. They were purchased in the 1880s by real-estate investment partnerships and were then adjusted to the area development. The development continued when the Georgia Avenue streetcar line to Silver Spring was established, which caused the neighborhood to expand quickly. Cafritz Buildings and DJ Dunigan Company constructed brick row houses throughout the neighborhood during the 1920s and 30s to complete the development boom.

Quality of Life:

Petworth is primarily a residential area with a mix of town houses and single-family homes. Petworth was expected to develop more of a commercial neighborhood with the addition of a Metro station in 1999; however, it has retained the essence of residential neighborhood. Nearby Columbia Heights is ideal for shopping and dining.

Getting Around:

The Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station offers both Green and Yellow Lines service Metro Bus service run to Silver Spring, Mount Pleasant and Rhode Island Avenue.
