Cornerspotted: This Grocery Store Was at 9th & D Street NW

New, 1 comment

Nobody ventured a guess directly in in the comments section as to the location of this old grocery store, but one commenter who follows our Facebook page (which you should, too!) was able to figure out that the beleaguered J. Edgar Hoover Building now stands at this intersection. In fact, John Keyworth's Grocery was at the corner of 9th & D Street NW in 1894 and while the FBI headquarters' address is officially on Pennsylvania Avenue, the truth is that it's such a large structure that it backs into D Street as well.
