2400 to 2416 are part of a 16 unit group of row houses on I St. and New Hampshire Ave. (anchored by the corner yellow Fitzgerald House at 844 New Hampshire Ave.). The houses were built by J.H. Grant for developer Samuel Norment in 1886. The houses are brick, two bays wide, and two and half stories high. The houses share architectural motifs - a decorated cornice and segmental arches with beaded moldings over the openings. The houses have small fenced-in gardens or patios in the back. No. 2400 has a side entry and transom over the door.
