Laird-Dunlop-Lincoln House, 3014 N Street, Northwest, Washington, District of Columbia, DC
- Upscale 2x7680x5422
1988 Charles E. Peterson Prize, Entry
Significance: With the original, middle block built before 1798, this house represents a subset of the Federal period houses of Georgetown that were more ambitious that those closer to the piers and wharves, but not as large or pretentious as the estates being built but a few streets north of N Street. It also shows the interesting dichotomy between street facade on the north and port facade on the south. But unlike some other Georgetown houses it shows a quite skillful transition from Federal period to mid-nineteenth century revival tastes. Its owners, while not all of national significance, add importance because of unusual relationships and how they reflect the changes in Georgetown property owners.
