Much effort was given to preserve this 1870 carriage house’s landmark legacy while remodeling in 2019: hardwood floors throughout, flooded with natural light, gourmet kitchen, King bed & extra beddings upon request. Set back in a quiet corner but from the pulse of Shaw & Logan. 1min walk to convention ctr, 6 to Verizon ctr, 15 to White H.

The space
I am so excited Welcoming you in this unique place ! I should start with a little bit of a history (Two minutes of reading so you can get Some Inspiring background about the place.

Blagden Alley is a historic district defined by middle-class residences, churches and small apartment buildings which display a rich variety of Victorian architectural styles dating from the 1860’s to the 1890’s. In the interior of each block are extant examples of utilitarian alley dwellings, such as working class residences, stables and commercial buildings that are hidden behind the buildings facing the streets. The area illustrates how different classes, races and services were physically organized in the 19th-century city of Washington.

The names Blagden Alley and Naylor Court were derived from two 19th-century property owners, Thomas Blagden and Dickerson Nailor. Blagden owned property in the area and ran a lumberyard in the city. Dickerson Nailor (now spelled Naylor) also owned property and was a grocer. After the Civil War, Washington's downtown became increasingly commercial and residential development grew north to the Blagden Alley area in the 1870s and attracted several prestigious, affluent residents. The elegant townhouse, the Blanche K. Bruce House (NHL) at 909 M Street was constructed in 1873. Bruce was the first African American to serve as a Senator in Congress (R-Miss, 1875-1881). To the south was a house built by Alexander "Boss" Shepard, the chief of the Board of Public Works during the 1870s. Streetcar lines connected 9th and 7th Streets with downtown in 1873, and these streets served as the main commercial corridors.

After the Civil War, many African Americans migrated to Washington and came to live in the alley dwellings. They were small and poorly constructed buildings, mainly of wood and brick. The living conditions were overcrowded and unsanitary. Throughout the first half of the 20th century, there were concentrated efforts to have the alley dwellings demolished. Bladgen Alley and Naylor Court are two of only a handful of alleys which are extant.

The Blagden Alley neighborhood continued to serve as a closely-knit, racially mixed middle and working class neighborhood into the 20th century. However, the widening of 9th Street with its subsequent loss of street trees and yards, the flight of the middle class to the suburbs, the increase of absentee landlords and the 1968 riots led to deterioration of the area.

Today, there is interest in renovating and restoring the homes. New residents have been attracted to the area by the charm of the buildings and the proximity to downtown. So you know the big picture.

On the logistics side to recap the space is bright spacious 1000sq ft, totally open. Brand new kitchen appliances and state of the art Cuisinart tools . Security system extremely safe especially for Single woman traveler. Any question or further detail you may have about a specific of the place Just ask!

If you need to set up a desk area, a meeting room, A/V material I have everything you need. The space is indeed regularly used as an offsite meeting location for events at the convention center.

I can accommodate special and extra bedding as requested, although there is is a NO hard party policy. Let me know what the details are and I will try to work out something with you!
