distance include the popular District Taco, and Jose Andres’ recently open fast casual veg- etarian destination Beefsteak. Other nearby destinations include the newAmerican Uni- versity Law School, the highly regarded Wilson High School, Wilson Aquatic Center, Fort Reno Park and concert stage, and the Friendship/Tenley Public Library. Named in the late 1700’s for local tavern owner John Ten- nally, Tenleytown surrounds the site of Civil War-era Fort Reno, built on the city’s high- est natural ground at 409 feet

above sea level. By 1900, the last remains of the fort had been replaced by a reservoir, water tower, and a park that features sports fields, play- grounds, tennis, and more. The 1941 opening of Sears & Roebuck at Wisconsin Avenue and Albemarle St. was an im- portant milestone in the neigh- borhood’s growth. The area’s first Hechinger store also was located in Tenleytown; after Sears vacated its store in 1994, Hechinger bought and moved into the property. Hechinger eventually shuttered all of its stores. 
