Welcome to The Ontario

The Ontario, completed in 1906, is a landmark apartment building notable both for its eclectic Beaux Arts architecture and for its interesting history. Located in a quiet part of Washington's diverse and popular Adams Morgan neighborhood, the Ontario has been a cooperative since 1953. Some residents work in, or are retired from, politics, law, and government; several are active in the performing and visual arts; others are employed in higher education, medical research, the media, and a variety of other fields. As of this writing, one is a college student, two are in high school, and one is in diapers. Many residents serve on the building's various committees, overseeing everything from the cooperative's annual budget to its herb garden.
