Foggy Bottom

Foggy Bottom is an historic Washington, DC neighborhood with many single-family homes that date back to the late 1800's. It was once a working class community of Irish and German immigrants, as well as African Americans who were employed at the nearby breweries, glass plants, and the Washington Gas and Light Company. The area was given the name Foggy Bottom because it was set low near the Potomac River and was often filled with fog from the local industries. Today, the historic neighborhood is preserved and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Foggy Bottom is most known for the Kennedy Center, the Watergate Complex, also on the National Register of Historic Places, and George Washington University.
