Reader query:

“My wife and I live in Columbia Heights and read your blog. Walking around last week we came across the impressive and slightly spooky old Hebrew Home for the Aged building at 11th St. and Spring Road, NW.

We posted some pictures to Flickr:


As I was searching around to get a sense of the building’s history, I found some informative comments posted in response to a post of yours from last year. Point being:

Do you have any other thoughts or do you know anyone who might have some additional thoughts on the history?”

Folks never cease to amaze me with their knowledge of DC history. So who’s got the history of this home on 11th and Spring?
