Significance: This house was built about 1885 by Lucius Tuckerman, son of Rev. Dr. Joseph Tuckerman of Boston. Retiring from active business in New York, where he had lived most of his life Lucius Tuckerman moved to Washington for his last years. He selected this corner of Sixteenth and Eye Streets for his home. This site was part of the garden of the William W. Corcoran estate which, surrounded by a high brick wall, occupied most of the block. The Corcoran house, a fine old Georgian mansion, stood where the Chamber of Commerce is now. The only other houses in the block were those of John Hay and Henry Adams in H. Street....
