Click on it for greater detail and check out the ads for homes in Mt. Pleasant, Cleveland Park and Columbia Heights. The Washington Times – Saturday, June 17th, 1911 Amazon.com Widgets email Tags 1910s, Columbia Heights, real estate Jacob Hey Ghosts of DC — the house in the ad at 13th and Fairmont has had a “for sale” sign out for a while, and it just sold, for $990,000 — probably about 100 times the original price! http://www.redfin.com/DC/Washington/1248-Fairmont-St-NW-20009/home/10030545 I also really love the ad here for Virginia Highlands — “Want to vote? Move to Virginia”… I hope Arlington will reintroduce that slogan.
