A group of five row houses (955-963 25th St.) were built in 1911 by Harry A. Kite and designed by architect A.H. Beers. They are simple, two-floor, two-bay brick rowhouses, built towards the end of the District's historic period (1915). "These houses were owner-occupied by 1920. Three of the homeowners were African American." (A. Hoagland)
No. 957 has entry doors paired with No. 959 under under a semi-circular wood frame/pediment (which may not be original). The house's windows have stone lintels and brick sills and an L-shaped floor plan. The house's cornice is simple box in style and forms a line with the adjoining houses.
