Significance: This building forms part of the low scale commercial area north of Pennsylvania Avenue erected in Washington in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is one of the three similar commercial structures designed by the local architectural firm of Marsh and Peter. The street facades display the firm's versatility in manipulating traditional architectural styles of the commercial vernacular which dominates F Street between 9th and 15h Streets. Raleigh's is an excellent example of the use of Tudor stylistic elements applied to the exterior facade and into the interior retail spaces.
