Click photo below to see full sized image.
The south side of the 2500 block of I Street features nine row houses, built in 1911 (2512-2528 I St.). They are brick, two-bays-wide and two stories high. They are set back from the street allowing room for terraced gardens. Even though these houses have more land than others in the neighborhood, they were built as low cost housing for working people.
Nos. 2512-2518 were designed by local architect A.H. Beers and built by H.A. Kite. They are modest brick structures. No. 2516 has a first floor bay window with a metal hood that is not orginal to the house. It also has a recessed door. It shares the bracketed wood cornice with adjoining houses.
