Off Connecticut Avenue, near the National Zoo, and starting with Cathedral Avenue, you enter the neighborhood of Woodley Park. Like Cleveland Park, Woodley Park grew as the streetcar advanced. In 1800, Philip Barton Key, uncle of Francis Scott Key, built “Woodley”, a Georgian mansion on Cathedral Avenue between 29th and 31st streets. The mansion was the summer home of four presidents: Van Buren, Tyler, Buchanen and Cleveland. It is now owned and used by Maret School. This neighborhood of elegant period row houses and some detached homes, is an easy walk to Metro and shops.
