Row houses line Washington’s streets, defining some neighborhoods. With evolving floorplans and revolving residents, these valuable buildings have accommodated different lifestyles and survival strategies. Alison K. Hoagland will discuss her new book, The Row House in Washington, DC: A History, which chronicles the structure’s development from the 18th century to today.
