Notes
Survey number HABS DC-114
Building/structure dates: 1871 initial construction
Significance: The design, brickwork, and cast-iron of the fronts of these buildings, which for a virtually identical pair, provide an interesting and good example of American architecture of the period between 1860 and 1874. they make a distinguished contribution to the commercial section of Georgetown, in which premises for a small business downstairs and living quarters upstairs are often combined. The two buildings, at the time their fronts were built, were owned by Francis Wheatley, a leading citizen of Georgetown, and were passed on to two of his sons. The properties were in the Wheatley family from 1842-1920.
