Historic photo of the 918F street building

918 F Street’s rich history dates back to 1890 when it was designed by renowned architect Glenn Brown for the National Union Fire Insurance Company.

Inside, you may be standing where notable historic figures have stood before—like Civil War general Lewis Addison Grant and Charles Henry Dow of the Dow Jones Company—or where the police once raided the city’s largest illegal gambling operation right on the sixth floor!

Speaking of crime, check out the alley on the right side of the building. That’s the route John Wilkes Booth took after fatally shooting President Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in 1865.

Today, we’re dedicated to keeping the building just as lively as it always was (though admittedly less scandalous). So come and see us. We promise you’ll leave with some memorable stories of your own.
