History

2426 I Street is unusual because it is the only house in the Historic District that has a brownstone facing (instead of brick). It was built in 1880 as a residence, but by 1917, it was operated as a funeral home by undertaker Phillip Barbour. It is a house with good proportions, narrow windows on are paired over the door and three at each round bay.
