The following notes are taken from DCHistoryQuest, “an interactive GIS map that provides historical data on approximately 127,000 extant buildings in Washington, D.C.” To save space, I have deleted lines that are left blank. Please keep in mind that if no building permit is cited, the construction date is usually conjectural.
