1921 Ad for Columbia Heights Homes

1921 ad for Columbia Heights homes

Here is an old advertisement for real estate in Columbia Heights. This was printed on Saturday, November 12th, 1921 in The Washington Times. Using the consumer price index, $6,300 in 1921 equals $78,100 today. Though if you look at this simple online calculator, you’ll see the estimates vary wildly.
