Overview


Brookland is a neighborhood with strong connections to Howard and Catholic Universities, the Catholic Church, and Washington’s black intelligentsia. Its rich past is well preserved in its architecture, historic sites, and social institutions. It is a thriving middle-class neighborhood and a place full of family stories. It is graced by beautiful institutional open spaces, woods, and large backyards. But above all, it is a place full of history. The Brooks Mansion, the Twelfth Street business corridor, the Franciscan monastery, Fort Bunker Hill, and the Ralph Bunche House—each site tells another story of Brookland.
