I’ve got a few more historical ones for us this week. This one from Mt. Vernon Sq. near the Convention Center is the Blanche K. Bruce House:

“The Blanche K. Bruce House is a historic house in Washington, D.C.. It was a home of slave-born Blanche K. Bruce (1 March 1841 – 17 March 1898), who represented Mississippi as a U.S. Senator from 1875 to 1881 and was the first African-American to serve a full term in the U.S. Senate.”
