Significance: Although much altered, 515 Eleventh Street, NW, constructed around 1875, is a good example of a post-Civil War Italianate brick rowhouse. This type of building was constructed throughout Washington's developed area in the mid-19th century. The building contributes to the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site.
