Founded in 1912, Meridian Hill Park has a very unique appeal with perhaps no one recognizing this neighborhoods potential more than the park’s founder, Mary Foote Henderson (née Newton, from which the name Newton House is derived). Wife, mother, author, activist and hospitality connoisseur, Mary came to be known as “The Empress of Sixteenth Street.”
Today, Meridian Hill Park is a prime example of urban living at its finest; a warm, vibrant area offering a range of exceptional restaurants, a thriving nightlife as well as some of the most beautiful walks and views that the city has to offer. Adding to the richness of the neighborhood, Newton House is a collection of premium condominium residences that combine eye-catching modern design, top-of-the-line conveniences and a historical reverence for the area.
Mary was a living example of how exceptional people make an exceptional community. Newton House is proud to continue her work in bringing beautiful, comfortable homes to a new generation of visionaries.
