8. Sherman Cottages

Between 1903 and 1912, the second phase of Cleveland Park development featured houses in the Arts and Crafts style. Many of these were Sherman Cottages named for Ella Bennett Sherman, artist and wife of developer John Sherman. Smaller and less ornamented than earlier houses, they often included rope-dipped-in-plaster designs above windows and doors, but continued the traditional front porch. Find Sherman Cottages on Ashley Terrace, Newark Street east of 34th, and Macomb Street between Connecticut Avenue and Ross Place.
