      KALORAMA TRIANGLE
      The Kalorama area remained rural until the last years of the 19th century. The origins of the Kalorama estate date back to a 600-acre land grant from Charles II of England to a former indentured servant, John Langworth. The property was part of Anthony Holmead’s
      "Widows Mite" holdings in the 18th century, and was later owned by Gustavus Scott, a commissioner for the District of Columbia. In 1795, Scott constructed a large classically styled house at 23rd and S Streets called "Belair." Poet Joel Barlow bought the estate in 1807, and renamed it "Kalorama” after the Greek word for "fine view." The property changed hands throughout the 19th century, but continued to be known as Kalorama.
