Glen Echo's use as a cultural and educational center by the National Chautauqua Assembly ended when a rumor of malaria began in the fall of 1891. The Washington Railway and Electric Co. later purchased the land and developed it into a major amusement park. From 1900 until 1968, Washingtonians rode the streetcar from the city to Glen Echo for a day in the country.
