1886 photo of the home at 1208 First Avenue NW

This Queen Anne style house with its dramatic mansard, hipped, and gabled roof was built c. 1885. The wraparound porch, set on a rough stone base, has paired Ionic columns. From 1911 until 1933, this was the home of Charles D. Huston (1861-1944) and his wife Mary. He served as the Democratic mayor in 1902-1905, postmaster general from 1914 to 1921, and mayor again in 1922-1923 and 1930-1931.
