LeDroit Park demographics in the 1890s
The 1892 and 1895 police census tables, reported in the Evening Star, showed LeDroit Park growing 37% in those three years. Furthermore, the neighborhood was slowly becoming more diverse as the whites accounted for 96% of the population in 1892, but 91% in 1895.
Though LeDroit Park was established as an exclusively white neighborhood, by 1910 the neighborhood had become almost entirely black.
Despite these pendulum swings, LeDroit Park’s demography is more diverse today.
