Profile of building at 9th and G Place

You may have noticed the intricate detail on the building that houses Ruth's Chris Steak House on 9th Street between G and H Streets bordering a small alleyway known as G Place Northwest.

Streets of Washington profiles this historic building, which has an interesting history owed to Victor Evans, a successful patent attorney.   In 1907 Evans bought a mansion at the corner of 9th and Grant Place N.W., which is now G Place N.W., the small alley between the library and Ruth's Chris.  He built the building in 1909, though extensive additions have been added since then.
