Smaller new house approved for Hughes Mews, FB News Nov. 2001


The modern square brick house (909 Hughes Mews) was built in 2002. It replaced a garage built in 1965. It is currently occupied by artist/writer/story-teller J. Ford Huffman.

I've 17 years' worth of memories. However, the Chabriers (in 900) have lived on the Mews since the mid or late 1960s I think. My place was built in 2002, and I bought it in 2004. It's on the site of an architecturally insignificant garage. Within five years of my moving in, the District rebricked the alley's surface -- a mix of potholes, asphalt, broken bricks and grave. Part of the reason for repaving: The Mews is an officially historic alley, as is Snow's Court, which is why it was rebricked also. The mural on the back of 923 was done for a Foggy Bottom Arts exhibit soon after I arrived. Its plus is that it covers up part of the deteriorating structure.
