House History

The 2500 block of I Street features a variety of sizes and styles of working-class row houses. Irish immigrant builder Peter McCartney built several of these houses. At the top of the hill are two narrower row houses - No. 2508 is another Peter McCartney house, built in 1887 for Thomas Cahill. Note the restrained brick cornice and delicate jigsaw work above the windows and door. This house also has an unusual side-entrance.
