Eckington Property Values
Eckington is one of the smallest neighborhoods in DC and is lauded for its close proximity to downtown DC and reasonable prices. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington. The name derives from Eckington England: birthplace of James Gales, Jr., who served as mayor of Washington from 1827 to 1830. The area was one of the first to have a stop on Washington’s first electrical railway in the 1880’s. Real estate in Eckington is made up mostly of century-old row houses and some newer condo developments, including NoMa West at the south end of the neighborhood.
