History

The 2400 block of I Street features typical two-story working class Foggy Bottom Historic District row houses. Most of the brick row houses you see on both sides of the street were built between 1880 and 1910. The row houses were also used as grocery stores, saloons and other neighborhood businesses. They faced potential demolition in the 1950s, but instead, following the Georgetown neighborhood model, the houses were renovated and preserved.
