Take a look back in time to uncover the mystery of homes advertised in The Evening Star in 1912. See the Google Street View to find out what these homes look like today.

Here is an ad from The Evening Star printed on Saturday, September 14th, 1912 (seven weeks later Woodrow Wilson was elected president — and he banned inaugural balls). Any thoughts on where these homes are today? According to the advertisement, they’re somewhere on New Hampshire Ave. between Georgia and 11th St. I was digging around on Google Street View to see what I could find. It appears that these are the homes at the northeast corner of New Hampshire and Park Rd. NW. Take a look for yourself.
