We first wondered about this house back in 2008. Sad to be reminded it’s still in the same shape as it was back then. The Post published an interesting history on the home over the weekend:

“The home’s owner, Howard University, has halted its plans to rehabilitate the Terrell House as a local museum and community space. That movement lost its momentum during the Great Recession, and there has been little effort to resuscitate it since.”
