I want to branch out a little more and represent more neighborhoods. This is a great old real estate advertisement — I’ve been finding a ton of these lately — highlighting Fort Lincoln Heights in NE Washington. Yes, I know that Barbadoes is actually spelled Barbados. But this is a blog that remains true and authentic, so we don’t rewrite history.

The best part is “a twenty minutes’ trot from the city boundary (two miles).” Seven-room homes sold for $2,000 which would be around $51,000 today (based on the CPI).

Here is today's recommendation for you. We think you'll like it!
