Capitol Hill
Formerly known as Jenkins Hill, Capitol Hill was named in 1800 and describes the collection of legislative and judicial buildings surrounding the U.S. Capitol. Capitol Hill also encompasses many homes and businesses east of the U.S. Capitol. This neighborhood was developed in the early 19th century to serve legislators and their families, and continues to do so today.
