Ancient History

Various Algonquin tribes inhabited the Potomac Valley when the Europeans first arrived.

The Residence Act of 1790 created the Capital District along the Potomac River. The states of Maryland and Virginia donated lands, including the village of Georgetown, as well as Alexandria. Consequently, these created the District of Columbia. Indeed, this district is under federal jurisdiction exclusively. The city of Washington was then founded in 1791.

Several important buildings were burned down during the War of 1812.

In 1846, the District of Columbia returned the city of Alexandria to Virginia.

The Civil War of 1861 provoked a major expansion of federal organizations and therefore the population increased, especially with freed slaves from the south. Then, the population in 1870 had grown to 132,000.

Recent History

The Second World War (1939-45) also contributed to an increase in the size of the city, which in 1950 was over 800,000.

Washington eventually became the rallying point for public protests for civil rights, anti-war movements, and other popular causes.

Finally, as of 2018, Washington’s population is just over 700,000.
