Map & Directions

Fort Totten is a beautiful neighborhood with its long, hilly streets lined with red-brick, and semi-detached single-family homes built in the 1950s. Transportation will never be an issue in Fort Totten. The Red, Yellow, and Green Metro lines all stop at the Fort Totten Metro Station, which is about a half mile away.

Fort Totten got its name from a fort that was built during the Civil War as part of the Northern Defenses. Today, the fort is mostly in ruins but is located at a high point overlooking the Military Asylum, and President Lincoln’s summer home. In addition to all of the historic sites here, there are lots of places to cycle and hike - Fort Totten and Fort Circle Parks, to name a few.
