Baumgartner, 1160 Summer Street NE, (D)

In 1926 this was the 208 (280?) Winter Street home of the Joseph and Ada Baumgartner. Mr. Baumgartner was a hop dealer and there are many photographs of the family with their friends, the Bushes in the years between 1900 and 1905. After 1937, it was moved to 785 N. Summer Street address when the State Library was built on that site as the first structure on the North Capitol Mall. It was moved to this location more recently as the mall expanded to the north.
