Norway Tract is a historically significant area located in Washington, D.C., United States of America. Situated in the northeast quadrant of the city, the tract is bounded by present-day Florida Avenue to the south, Rhode Island Avenue to the north, 9th Street to the west, and 15th Street to the east. It was named after a large landholding owned by Norwegian immigrant Lars K. Larsen in the late 19th century.

During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Norway Tract was predominantly a residential neighborhood, consisting of row houses and small businesses. The community was primarily inhabited by working-class families, including many Norwegian immigrants who settled in the area. The neighborhood's vibrant cultural heritage was reflected in its numerous Scandinavian social and cultural organizations, as well as its Lutheran churches.

Over the years, Norway Tract underwent significant changes due to urban development and population shifts. Many of the original row houses have been replaced by commercial buildings and modern apartments, altering the character of the neighborhood. However, efforts have been made to preserve its historical significance, and some of the original architecture still remains.

Today, Norway Tract is a diverse and bustling neighborhood, home to a mix of residents from various backgrounds. Its central location in the city makes it a desirable place to live, with easy access to downtown Washington, D.C., and its array of cultural, educational, and recreational amenities. The historical significance and cultural heritage of Norway Tract continue to be appreciated and acknowledged by both residents and visitors alike.
