2345 Lafayette Avenue, at that street’s intersection with Jefferson Avenue, is one of the newest, most heavily documented, yet least understood structures in Lafayette Square. The Lafayette Square Archives has done its research to wind back the clock on Das Deutsche Haus, and serve it up fresh for you.
Due to the incredibly varied tales this building tells, there are a total of six illustrated essays, posting over the next number of weeks. The first and last cover the larger sweep of time from 1928 to the present, and the others do a deeper dive into specific aspects of its history. Get the jump on them by reading the first edition this Sunday on lafayette.org/archives, or your Facebook or NextDoor feeds.
