Fort Lincoln Features & Properties
The Shops at Dakota Crossing have helped to re-energize the neighborhood in terms of retail. Costco is the centerpiece of Dakota Crossing, which is in the next phase of construction that will include a Marshalls and more restaurant options. Hundreds of new townhouses have been built in the area, and roads, lighting, and landscaping have been improved as a result. DC Brau, our pick for the best brewery in the District, is located just across Bladensburg Road NE from Fort Lincoln. Both Fort Lincoln Park and Dakota Playground are centrally located in the neighborhood and offer recreation and nature, as is the U.S. National Arboretum.
Fort Lincoln History
Fort Lincoln is a small, blossoming neighborhood tucked in between a park and a beautiful cemetery in Northeast DC. The area is nadmed after a Civil War fort that was constructed as an outer defense for the city of Washington. The fort is located just across the Maryland border in Prince George’s County, and can still be visited today along with the expansive Fort Lincoln Cemetery.
President Lyndon B. Johnson saw the neighborhood as a model of a planned community in the 1960’s, and that growth and expansion is continuing and becoming fully realized in the 21st Century.
