Inscription.  This rowhouse was constructed at the turn of the twentieth century and features an Italianate cornice and simple porch with turned posts in a classical balustrade. Edward C. Saunders occupied the house from 1902-1914. He was a traveling salesman for Mosby, Wilkinson & Anderson, a notions & white goods wholesale company. In 1915, Mr. Saunders moved next door to 2708. The house sat vacant until 1917 when it became the home of Cornelius J. Gooch, a conductor. This house is listed as a contributing structure to the St. John's Church Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
