9th and Rhode Island Ave. NW

If you’ve driven down 9th Street NW before, I’m sure you’ll recognize this building with it’s memorable mural dedicated to Carter G. Woodson among others.


A closer inspection after the jump.


Carter G. Woodson House


The National Park Service acquired the Carter G. Woodson House at 1538 9th Street NW in 2005.  The Park Service website states:

Completion of the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site will include a restoration and renovation of historic buildings; development, fabrication, and installation of interpretative exhibits; production and distribution of educational and interpretative materials and other site improvement such as parking, way-finding signs, wayside exhibits and much more.

The house however is still “vacant, closed to the public, and in need of rehabilitation.”  More information about the house and Carter G. Woodson himself, after the jump.

With apologies to Ed Ruscha’s Every Building on the Sunset Strip, here’s a group of six vacant buildings across from the Convention Center at 9th and L St. NW that I stitched together.
