For the past decade, Barracks Row Main Street has worked tirelessly to preserve and enhance Capitol Hill’s historic 8th Street, SE, commercial corridor and to revitalize its business community. The group’s focus is the five blocks of 8th Street that stretch south from Pennsylvania Ave S.E. to the Washington Navy Yard along M Street, S.E.

Barracks Row Main Street was chartered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street program in 1999, thanks to a group of Capitol Hill residents and business leaders who were concerned about the state of disrepair on the oldest commercial corridor in the nation’s capitol. Crumbling sidewalks were replaced with brick pavers, American Elms were planted, and historic black-iron “Washington Globe” street lights installed. In 2005 Barracks Row Main Street won the prestigious Great American Main Street Award.

Barracks Row Main Street, with the help of generous sponsors, produces a number of events each year to promote the corridor and the Main Street program’s supporters to the Capitol Hill neighborhood and the rest of the greater Washington DC metropolitan area.
