Mount Pleasant is bounded by Rock Creek Park to the north and west; and Harvard Street, NW and the Adams Morgan neighborhood to the south; and Sixteenth Street, NW and the Columbia Heights neighborhood to the east.

Neighborhood Feel: 

Mount Pleasant is buffered by parks in the North and West part of the neighborhood but falls into a more urban scene in the South East. The neighborhood was first the property of one man -- James Holmead, who received the patent for the land area from Lord Baltimore of Maryland in 1727. After Mr. Holmead's British nephew died in 1802 the land, the now named "Pleasant Plains", began to be divided. As the city began to grow, Mount Pleasant was enveloped. Mount Pleasant was known for its white affluent residents but the area became more diverse with establishment of Howard University and the end of segregation. Much of Mount Pleasant is wooded and consists of row houses or town homes many of them subdivided into apartments or condominiums but closer to Mount Pleasant Street, 16th Street, and Columbia Heights there are more mid-rise buildings, restaurants, and other more commercial industries. Along Mount Pleasant Street are many local hang out spots but Mount Pleasant itself is not the night-life hub of the city, however, Adams Morgan, U Street, and Dupont Circle are very accessible to residents.
