Dorchester House: Close to Everything That is Washington (1941)

What a great old advertisement for Dorchester House, the giant apartment building at 16th and Kalorama. The building opened in 1941 and one of its early residents was our 35th President, John F. Kennedy, then a 24-year-old, living with his sister Kathleen.

Gotta love this quote: “… a magnificent residential colony or superior quality.”

This is such an iconic building with a lot of history … probably time for a “Three Things…” or “If Walls Could Talk” post on it. What do you think?
