This house (with a door on 25th St.) has been joined with the house formerly designated 2428 I St. (which has a door on I St.). In 1983, the rear addition was a separate residence. While the house doesn't showcase decorate architectural elements, it does illustrate the changing housing patterns found in Foggy Bottom. In 2022 real estate listings showed the house had 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and an area of 1,960 sq ft.

The house on the corner (2428 I St.) was a grocery store in the early 1900s. In the early 1960s, the Marg-Ann Beauty Salon occupied that corner (with a front entrance on I Street).

"I always say this is the Foggy Bottom Post office, " says Glady Gillian, proprietor of the Marg-Ann Beauty Shop. She keeps keys for her neighbors and accepts deliveries for them if they are out of town or at work." August 6, 1972 Evening Star newspaper article.
