Bellevue is a residential neighborhood in far Southeast and Southwest in Washington, D.C., United States. It is bounded by South Capitol Street, one block of Atlantic Street SE, and 1st Streets SE and SW to the north and east; Joliet Street SW and Oxon Run Parkway to the south; Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Shepherd Parkway, 2nd Street SW, and Xenia Street SW to the west. Bellevue was created from some of the earliest land patents in Maryland, and draws its name from a 1795 mansion built in the area. Subdivisions began in the 1870s, but extensive residential building did not occur until the early 1940s. Bellevue is adjacent to a number of federal and city agency buildings.
On June 20, 1632, Charles I of England (ignoring Native American land claims) gave 12,000,000 acres of land covering most of what is now the modern U.S. state of Maryland to Cecil Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore as a proprietary colony. On September 4, 1663, a land patent was issued to Thomas Dent, Sr. for a tract known as “Gisbrough”. This tract was roughly in the area that is now Joint Base Anacostia–Bolling between Malcolm X Avenue SE/MacDill Boulevard SE and Giavannoli Street SW, the northern end of Bellevue, and the southern end of Congress Heights. On September 7, a land patent was issued to William Middleton for a tract known as “Berry”. This smaller tract covered what is now the southern end of Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling and the southern part of Bellevue.
In 1873, the U.S. federal government purchased 90 acres of Bellevue (consisting of the western half of the old Berry tract) and added this land to the adjacent Naval Gun Factory. This land was known as the Bellevue Annex to the Naval Gun Factory until 1923, when the federal government opened the United States Naval Research Laboratory on the site. The laboratory remains on the tract in the 21st century. In 2005, a 119-unit condominium townhouse development, Danbury Station, opened on Danbury Street SW. Financed in part by the city, units ranged in price from the high $200,000s to the low $300,000s, and 24 units were offered at below-market rates to low-income people.
Bellevue overlooks Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, and is just 10 minutes by car from the United States Capitol. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, the Naval Research Laboratory, the D.C. Fire Department Training Center, the D.C. Metropolitan Police Academy, the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority’s Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the Architect of the Capitol’s tree nursery are adjacent to Bellevue to the west. The neighborhood is overwhelmingly residential, with most housing consisting of detached single-family homes. Most of the housing in the area was built in the 1940s.
