Notes
Survey number HABS DC-600
Building/structure dates: 1870 initial construction
Significance: The architects of 443 Seventh Street are unknown, but building department date reveals that the structure was standing before 1877. The building is of note primarily for its relative antiquity and its fine bracketed cornice. The facades of its western portion in particular are handsomely proportioned with plain brick surfaces and windows that are reduced in height on upper floors. Generally, the building utilizes the straightforward construction and composition techniques typical for unpretentious buildings of its time.
