The Adams-Morgan Community Council was formed in the late 1950s as a result of a two-year demonstration project to improve the neighborhood, which had deteriorated over the prior decade. The project sought to build viable organizations that could plan and work for improvements in blighted areas of Adams-Morgan. The Council was established towards the end of the project as a unified voice to represent various community and interest groups, including the Midway Civic Association, The Kalorama Citizens Association, the Adams-Morgan Better Neighborhood Conference, as well as various block associations formed during the project. The Council worked to improve health, welfare, education, and recreation for the Adams-Morgan community.
