Links to Capitol Hill Community Organizations

In 2007, the American Planning Association named the Eastern Market neighborhood on Capitol Hill one of the “Great Places in America.” Many factors contribute to making a neighborhood a great place to live and work: mix of residential housing and commercial establishments, appealing architecture, walkability, good public transportation, recreational opportunities, green space, and the intangible sense of community spirit.

Many organizations on Capitol Hill reflect that spirit and demonstrate that the Hill is so much more than the cluster of monumental federal buildings where the nation’s business gets done. The Old Naval Hospital, a landmark of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, has been transformed into Hill Center, a vibrant, campus-like hub for cultural enrichment, lifelong learning, and civic engagement. Hill Center is also home to the new Capitol Hill Village Office.

The Capitol Hill Restoration Society ensures that our wonderfully diverse mix of house styles will be protected; the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop offers drawing, painting, photography, and many other classes to both adults and children; the Capitol Hill Community Foundation funds worthy projects and organizations that enhance the experience of living on Capitol Hill; and Barracks Row Main Street, the H Street Community Development Corporation, and the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce support business-friendly policies and development that contribute to a thriving economy and provide the goods, services, entertainment venues, and conveniences that residents use every day. Capitol Hill Village is proud to be among such good company, and invites our members and other website readers to learn more about these organizations and services by visiting their websites.
