Additional comments.
1. 6 Logan Circle
“6 Logan Circle – Built in 1878 to the designs of architect Henry R. Searle, the five-story, stone, Richardsonian Romanesque-style row house originally served as the residence of Naval Commander Allen V. Reed. From 1940 until 1982, the building functioned as a nine-unit apartment house. The headquarters for the Institute for Cooperation in Space and Centeye Inc. were previously located at the address. 6 Logan Circle currently serves as a six-unit condominium.” — Wikipedia
