Adjacent to north Old Town is Rosemont, a predominately residential neighborhood that was developed in the early 1900s. It was originally designed to be a suburb of Washington, DC accessible by electric railroad. The boundaries of the neighborhood extend from the George Washington National Masonic Memorial and the King Street Metro Station northward for approximately a dozen blocks to Braddock Road. Rosemont is graced by lovely 100+ year old trees and wide avenues and is conveniently located within walking distance to two Metro stations (King St. and Braddock Rd.). Bungalows or four squares are a popular housing style in Rosemont, many which are Sears model kit homes which were popular during the 1910-1940s. The kit homes were ordered by catalog and delivered by train in pieces with assembly instructions. Click here to search Rosemont properties and view a map of the area.
