Square 457 (Commercial Buildings), D, E, Sixth, & Seventh Streets, Northwest, Washington, District of Columbia, DC



Significance: ...Throughout its history, Square 457 has contained a diversity of buildings and uses. The 1857 Boschke map indicates a pattern that with gradual development and change, held true nearly to the present. in this pattern, Seventh Street had commercial buildings and Sixth Street was residential, while D and E Streets contained a diverse mix of structures. Seventh Street was the most densely built at that time, with what appears to be commercial buildings. An "Odd Fellows Building" is already indicated on that organization's current site in the middle of the Seventh Street frontage. A row of much smaller structures, apparently row houses, is indicated along Sixth Street. D and E Streets held a mixture of buildings, including the Third Baptist Church on the eastern portion of E Street.
