There are two stories as to why city officials changed the name from Broadway Hill to Capitol Hill. Some say that the original developer’s wife simply liked the way it sounded, while others think he hoped that the state would actually move the capitol to that area. In its early days, the neighborhood was certainly ritzy enough to be the political center of the state. Huge houses were built, which led to the nickname of “Millionaires’ Row” in one area. After World War II, a great number of apartment buildings were constructed, changing the demographics. These two cultures are still reflected today.
