Shaw has recently seen quite a revival as it has transitioned from a residential community of 19th century Victorian row houses to the lively neighborhood of trendy bars, condo conversions, newly constructed apartments and specialty shops.
Shaw, named after Civil War Colonel Robert Shaw also began as a freed slave encampment. Howard University opened in the area in 1866, allowing for further development. The neighborhood was a center for jazz during the 1920s and 30s and was home to musician Duke Ellington.
Shaw has experienced a great amount of redevelopment in the past two decades, resulting in a resurgence of population. With its beautiful and historic housing, great location, upscale commercial activity and civic-minded residents, today’s Shaw continues an upward trend.
