The houses located on the west side of New Hampshire Avenue from 3600 to 3612 were built by Joseph J. Moebs. Construction began in 1909. Upon purchasing the land from Ernest Steiger for $7,800, some speculated that Moebs would erect an apartment house instead of residences . This view shows the row from the southeast, at the intersection of New Hampshire and Rock Creek Church Road.

    wow, so the sidewalk used to stick a lot further out (like what they’d call a bulb-out today). they should widen it again to be as it was.
