Constructed in 1899, the Jefferson Apartment Building is one of 105 purpose-built multiple-family dwellings built in DC between 1880 and 1900, of which only 13 remain. The Jefferson is an early example of a conventional low-rise apartment building, designed to offer modest accommodations for Washington's middle class.
This four-story, plus basement and attic, structure contains eight apartments, two units on each floor.
