  • This is the easternmost of a row of five built in 1908-09 by developer L.E. Breuninger. Estimated contruction cost was $35,000 for all five. Breuninger was quite active in Mt. Pleasant and then on up the 16th Street corridor, never prolific as Wardman, he preferred to keep the the quality high. What strikes me about this block is how the developers made the extra effort and expense to use “face brick” on the sides of the houses. Classy.

    • Brian, thanks so much for that info. We live at 1834 (yellow one next door) and love the block and the houses. I had read through the nomination packet for the National Register for the Mt Pleasant Historic District but was not able to find much about our row, except that they could be classified as Georgian Revival in style. Good to know.

  • Love these houses! Seem like they rarely come up for purchase though.
