Notes
Survey number HABS DC-380
Building/structure dates: 1858 initial construction
Significance: Built between 1854 and 1858 (D.C. Tax and Assessment Records, National Archives), this building is the oldest existing structure on the south side of this block of F Street. The building is typical of the small, mid-nineteenth century masonry structures of the Pennsylvania Avenue Historic District and Washington's old downtown. It forms a link in the chain of varied commercial buildings which enliven the F Street business district. The facade's metal window hoods and cornice are large in scale and a grad gesture or an otherwise modest building.
