House History

A typical Foggy Bottom historic row house is brick, 12-16 feet wide and 26 feet deep, and two or three stories high. Most of the houses have fenced in gardens or patios in the back. From an architectural perspective, the “late Victorian” row houses generally have flat-fronts and simple ornamentation. Builders used pressed and molded brick detailing builders to make even modest houses appear distinctive.

812-818 New Hampshire Ave. were built in 1885 for R.A. Beuchler. The two-story, two-bay houses feature brick molded arches above the windows and doors, and decorated cornices.
