More About Kalorama

A long time ago, Kalorama was a rural area outside of DC's boundaries. In the 1700's, English settler Anthony Holmead took possession of the land that now makes up the neighborhood, and when he passed away, his nephew built a three-story brick home (at 23rd and S Street NW) on the property. While various owners made landscaping improvements over time, the area remained home to just the single-family residence for years. In the 1880's, changes in DC set the stage for a more familiar Kalorama to emerge. The city was growing and developers were looking to expand its boundaries (then marked by Boundary Road, now Florida Avenue). DC's transportation map was also changing; Connecticut Avenue was being straightened and extended and the streetcars were imminent.
