This is a terrific old map from 1867 that we dug up at the Library of Congress. The land on top of which St. Elizabeths Hospital was built had been referred to as St. Elisabeth since the Colonial times and the hospital had informally taken the area’s name ever since.
The land was subdivided into acre lots on this map after the Civil War, to be sold to freedmen. Make sure to click on the map for greater detail.
