Survey number HABS DC-123
Building/structure dates: 1865 initial construction
Significance: Built in 1865 on the foundations of the Old Georgetown Market (c. 1796), the Georgetown Market stands on land occupied by earlier structures-- a butcher's market and the Georgetown debtor's jail --of the eighteenth century. Although not of extraordinary architectural significance, of the Market is perhaps the finest remaining symbol of Georgetown's long history of commercial endeavor.
