This is one of four typical Foggy Bottom row houses (815-821 25th St.). They were built in 1885 by Frank Carver, with architect Charles Burden, who also were responsible for 801-813 25th Street and 800- 810 New Hampshire Avenue. This group of houses is simpler than those other houses, which demonstrate more ornamentation and variety.
Nos. 815-821 are two story, two bay brick rowhouses with flat facades and brick arches over doors and windows. A single bracketed, corbelled cornice runs the length of the units. All doors are on the right and retain their transoms.
