Jazz legend Duke Ellington lived in Columbia Heights during the 1920s. Following the area’s destruction by the riots of 1968, the region was home to not much more than a horse track, farmland and Columbia University (what is now George Washington University). Developers took notice and transformed the area after the metro station opened in 1999.
