The suburban-like Spring Valley neighborhood is located near the western edge of the Northwest quadrant of Washington DC and is home to many prominent and influential residents. This strangely coincidental breast-shaped neighborhood is outlined northeast by Massachusetts Ave. NW, southeast and south by Nebraska Ave. NW and Loughboro Rd. NW, and west Dalecarlia Parkway NW. The area is home to higher learning institutions (American University, Wesley Theological Seminary, and Washington College of Law) and international ambassadors from countries like South Korea, Mexico, and Canada, just to name a few. Spring Valley dwellings have also been the pre-presidential home of Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, and George H.W. Bush. This affluent neighborhood has and continues to attract the national and international elite.
Historically, the Spring Valley area was purposed for chemical munitions testing by the US Army around World War I. Chemical warfare testing, an unfortunate hallmark of the First World War, was not publicly uncovered in Spring Valley until 1993, when residential utility trench-digging unearthed unexploded ordinances. Proximal soil tests revealed high levels of toxic chemicals, like arsenic, putting into motion large scale clean-up efforts spearheaded by the US Army Corp of Engineers. To date, over $220 million has been used to rectify the problem and to study ongoing public health effects. In spite of anecdotal health-related case reports and media exposure, the region’s prestige and home prices, has continued to soar.
Spring Valley boasts beautifully manicured estates with grand, primarily Colonial and Tudor styled homes, in a serene and nature-inspired landscape. The cost of buying in this exclusive neighborhood, with some of the highest prices in Washington DC, requires significantly deep pocketbooks. The suburban feel and relative close proximity to the Districts historical and commercial centers attract a high-end clientele of residents. The Spring Valley Shopping Center on Massachusetts Ave. NW has a few essential commercial businesses, like coffee shops, local banks, a CVS convenience store, and Wagshal’s market and deli.
