Lanier Heights is a small urban neighborhood located in the northwest section of Washington, D.C., and is one of the early subdivisions which were created inside the District of Columbia, but which lay outside of the original, officially-planned City of Washington. Situated two miles north of the White House, Lanier Heights is within the larger and newer neighborhood of Adams Morgan, and is usually considered to be a part of that more prominent locale. Developed mostly between 1900 and 1940, Lanier Heights consists primarily of row houses, plus a number of low- and medium-rise apartment buildings. The architecture is generally typical of the early twentieth century, in a variety of styles, especially Classical Revival. Some of the apartment houses have distinctive, well-crafted Art Deco designs. The area also contains a commercial stretch of stores on its southern side along Columbia Road. Nearby, just to the north of Lanier Heights, is the slightly older neighborhood of Mount Pleasant. Before the founding of Washington, D.C., in 1791, most of the land beneath Lanier Heights was originally part of a large, undeveloped piece of property granted, in 1714, to John Bradford, who then named this tract “Plain Dealing”. In 1763 this “Plain Dealing” tract was purchased by Robert Peter of Georgetown. But in general, the land that became Lanier Heights was being only lightly used—mostly (if at all) for common farming—until shortly after the end of the Civil War, when Washington started to grow with more vigor. For a time after that war, there was a small quarry, for construction stone and gravel, located along Rock Creek at the northern edge of the area.

The development of the neighborhood officially began in 1883 with the creation of the “Lanier Heights Subdivision”, a project planned and financed by Elizabeth Lanier Dunn and her husband General William M. Dunn. This plan’s somewhat casual street configuration was laid out just a few years before Congress decreed (in 1888) that henceforth the rectangular grid system of the central city would be continued throughout the District for all new street construction. At first the new subdivision’s growth was slow. Within several years banker Archibald M. McLachlen and biologist George Brown Goode of the Smithsonian Institution had, in large part, gained control of the tract with the idea of having the neighborhood become a residential community for Smithsonian employees and other professionals in Washington. In 1897 the introduction of an electric streetcar line on Columbia Road encouraged activity. Additionally, construction of the noteworthy and attractive apartment house named The Ontario (built 1902-06) brought further attention, and people, to the area. The subdivision then developed into a fairly affluent area of families and single people, including professionals, intellectuals, and city workers.
