It's pretty easy to 'own a piece of history' if the house is in Capitol Hill, but this one is even more historical than all those other pre-1900 dwellings. This was the family home of William Yost who was a prominent DC builder in the late 1800s responsible for many of the signature styles of this neighborhood. This 1892 Victorian style mansion is still standing, with plenty of carved stonework to prove its authenticity. The eight bedroom, two and a half bath house is two blocks from Eastern Market and the sellers want $1,695,000 from you before they hand over the keys.
