Crestwood is bounded by 16th Street NW, on the east, Colorado Avenue on the northwest and Rock Creek Park on the west and south. The history of Crestwood can be traced back to colonial land grants from the early 18th century. The land offered an enticing niche of resources: a creek that could power water wheels, a forest for game hunting and, later, recreation.
Originally surveyed as a single estate, Crestwood began its transformation into a residential neighbor in the early 1900s. The pace of development picked up during the years before and after World War II.
