Superb Stone Residence at 1708 Q Street NW

1708 Q St. NW

Here’s a cool ad from The Evening Star. This was published in their Friday, May 4th, 1906 edition. The house at 1708 Q St. NW was for sale, and it could be acquired for the sum of $13,000. What a deal! … considering the fact that Zillow places this home north of $1.4 million. Do you know who lives in that house? Send this along to them. I’m sure they’ll get a kick out of the fact that their home once cost slightly more than their current annual property tax.
