The Yards gets its rich history – and name – from the neighboring Washington Navy Yard. In the early 19th century, the area now known as The Yards was home to a bustling wharf, sugar refinery and brewery. Up until World War II, The Yards was an important part of the industrial capacity of the Navy Yard which has since been reduced in overall size. But, that proud nautical industrial heritage has now found new life as The Yards!
