Mount Pleasant in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Trolley Arrives in Mount Pleasant
Most of the rowhouses and apartment buildings in Mount Pleasant were built between 1900 and 1920, shortly after the trolley arrived. Many were architect-designed, evidence of the relative prosperity of this upper-middle-class neighborhood. New stores opened along Mount Pleasant Street, and several churches, Bancroft Elementary School, and the Mount Pleasant Library were built to accommodate the growing population.
