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.

This is one of four typical Foggy Bottom row houses (815-821 25th St.). They were built in 1885, with similar flat facades, brick arches, and a cornice that connects the four buildings.
