Hint: It's Located Near One of Washington's Famous Circles

New, 1 comment

Welcome to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Washington, D.C. and its past!


This building used to house a small, co-ed primary school, but is now a 10-unit apartment building. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was originally named after the female principal who ran the school. This photo was taken between 1921 and 1922, and the building in the photo doesn't look too different from how it looks now, save for maybe a paint job. So, can you guess where this structure is located and what it was originally called?
