John Davidson House

The Davidson House was the residence of an entrepreneur important to early Washington’s industry.

Constructed in approximately 1810, the John Davidson House was built by a partner of early Washington’s commercial mogul Francis Dodge. Davidson would also own the Dodge Warehouse, as written in a fire insurance policy from 1837. The Davidson House is a fine example of Federal style architecture, with its fanlight and door surround, wrought iron railing, six-over-six windows, and shutters.
