The Mission of the Dupont Circle Conservancy

The Dupont Circle Conservancy, formed in 1978, is an all volunteer membership-based non-profit 501c(3) educational organization. Its mission is to promote preservation of the historic and architectural character of the Dupont Circle Historic District and nearby areas of the adjacent Greater U Street, Massachusetts Avenue (from 17th to 23rd Streets), Sixteenth Street, and Strivers’ Section Historic Districts, all located in Northwest Washington, DC.


This web site is dedicated to the memory of Ron Leve (1942-2008),
who was instrumental in its creation and a long-time member of the Dupont Circle Conservancy. 

The Conservancy thanks member Charlie Gaynor for use of his photographs throughout the site.
