Spring Valley is a prosperous neighborhood of about 6,000 residents in northwest Washington, D.C., several miles northwest of downtown. Although Spring Valley isn’t as famous as some of its neighbors, it’s one of D.C. wealthier and more affluent areas, and has been the home to several famous residents, including Lyndon B. Johnson, George H. W. Bush, Warren Buffett, Jim Vance and other TV personalities, politicians and corporate executives. The embassy residences of several nations are also located in Spring Valley, including that of Canada, Mexico, Chile, South Korea and Uganda. It is bordered by the Maryland border on the north, American University Park on the northeast, Cathedral Heights on the southeast and The Palisades on the southwest. The vast majority of American University is actually located within Spring Valley, despite the name of its northeastern neighbor.
