Edgewood Commons, a large complex of mixed-income and senior citizen public housing, opened in 1972. It was built by Bethesda developer Eugene Ford, and it was originally managed by H. R. Crawford. Today, Edgewood Commons (formerly known as Edgewood Terrace) remains a central landmark of the neighborhood.
Edgewood Wall is part of Open Walls DC, a public art initiative that provides spaces and walls for graffiti artists, street artists, muralists, art students, emerging and established artists who love to paint outdoors and large. The goal of Open Walls DC is to create large ever-changing murals that beautify our city and are unusual creative public spaces.
