Tenleytown was a small Maryland town before its incorporation into the new American capital. It served D.C. during the Civil War as home to Fort Reno and was home to a freed black community until the federal government removed most of these residents to construct public infrastructure. Tenleytown grew into a white, middle-class neighborhood along Wisconsin Avenue streetcar line and subsequently received a Metro stop in 1984. The retail corridor is supported by the area’s low-density residential and has started to evolve with the rest of D.C.. American University also calls Tenleytown home.
