Biographical / Historical
The Dupont Circle Community Association was formed in May 1922. The goals of the organization were “the advancement of the city’s housing conditions; school betterment; traffic regulations; and fair and equitable rates for public service corporations, especially street car fares and electric light rates.” The North Dupont area boundaries were defined as Florida Avenue to the west, T Street to the north, and 15th Street to the south. In the 1970s, the Dupont Circle Community Association was involved in a number of legal disputes over property and zoning regulations, including a proposed plan to demolish the Salvation Army Building at 1800 Corcoran Street NW.
