  • Alley Dwelling Authority


    The Alley Dwelling Authority was a government funded program that sought to help with the development of alley dwellings in Washington DC. Alleys in Washington DC suffered from a variety of problems, most prominently overpopulation and poverty. During the 1800s in Foggy Bottom, Washington DC’s population changed drastically. Starting in 1822, there was an estimated forty households with a majority of skilled workers; however, by 1860 there were around 175 households. This drastic change yielded the percentage of skilled workers and unskilled workers to fluctuate. This suggests that there was a boom in the economy and a drastic change in the need for factory hands. This change was beneficial because it created greater numbers to flock into these new areas of Foggy Bottom, then forcing groups like the Alley Dwelling Authorities to step in and reconstruct old dilapidated homes.

  • Boarding house

The common parts of the house are maintained, and some services, such as laundry and cleaning, may be supplied. They normally provide "room and board," that is, at least some meals as well as accommodation. Lodgers legally only obtain a licence to use their rooms, and not exclusive possession, so the landlord retains the right of access.
