As its name would imply, Capitol Heights, MD is located just over the Washington DC line on Rt. 214 (Central Avenue). With its proximity to such major attractions, it is a prime location with easy access on Metrorail’s Blue Line. Most of the homes in the area are older single-family homes dating back to the 1920s. Some new home construction has started in the area with communities like Gateway Park and Deanwood Park leading the way.
