We first posted about Moore Investment Company in March of 2008
. As you know, in 1900 J.A. Moore paid $225,000 for 160 acres of what would become Capitol Hill.
I managed to dig up this 1902 ad showing what was for sale at the time. Ahh, craftsmanship — you are missed. Click for the high res and drop by the comments to tell us which houses you’ve found that are still standing.
