About Adams Morgan

Adams Morgan has been a diverse area since its creation. The name Adams Morgan was chosen because it combined the names of two segregated elementary schools in the area — one black and one white. During desegregation in the late 50s, the neighborhood was formed to encompass both schools and their communities. By the 60s, many immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Central America began settling in the area. And African, Asian, and Caribbean residents soon followed. As a result, Adams Morgan is one of the District’s most diverse areas with an array of international stores and restaurants. In fact, over 30 nations are represented in the neighborhood’s public schools.
