Lost Washington: 1603 K Street, NW
The red brick home that was once located at 1603 K Street, was likely built in the late 1880s. It was most notable for being the home of William Howard Taft from 1904-08, while he was Secretary of War.
In March, 1955, the AFL Bakers Union purchased the home, along with 1601 K Street (former home of Admiral Dewey), 1609 K Street, and 1006 16th Street with plans to build an eight-story building as their Washington location.
