post on Chapman Stables in #TruxtonCircle – it is now in the DC Inventory of Historic Sites – no razing”

From the Historic Preservation Review Board:

After careful consideration, the Historic Preservation Office recommends that the Board revise the boundaries of the proposed landmark application to include only the garage and stable building at 37-57 N Street, NW on Square 617 Lot 215, and that the Board designate the building a Historic Landmark to be entered into the D.C. Inventory of Historic Sites. Staff recommends that the Board forward the nomination to the National Register with the identified revised boundaries. Staff further recommends that the property name be Chapman Coal Company Stable and Garage to more fully reflect the history of the property.
