Significance: 519 Eleventh Street, NW, constructed around 1875, is a much-altered three-bay, three-story brick building. Its uses over the years are typical of its downtown neighborhood and have included printing and confectionary activity. The building's most significant occupant was probably the Pearson's Printing Office, the firm that printed Supreme Court decisions during the 1930s. 519 Eleventh Street contributes to the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site.
