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.
During most of the area's history, some of these residential buildings were also used for commercial businesses that served the community. The owners often lived on the floor above the businesses. In 1914, the owner of 2404 I St. was fruit vendor.
1914 -- George Lomedico, fruit vendor (possibly from lower level of house)
1958 - Mr. and Mrs. H.P. Caemmerer
