130 Duddington PLACE SE, Washington, DC 20003
Once home to one of the finest estates in Washington, Duddington Manor, and originally named Heckman Street, Duddington Place was renamed in 1960. This one block long, one-way Capitol Hill street is lined with ginkgo trees and colorful row houses, located between First and Second Streets SE and has been home to famous Washingtonians such as basketball player Elgin Baylor and several members of Congress. In 2019, The Duddington Place Block Party celebrated its 50th anniversary of the beloved all-day affair and the D.C. Council declared Duddington Place Day on that Saturday. Not only just blocks to the United States Capitol and surrounding congressional office buildings, but there are also three parks within one block of Duddington Place.
