Description The "Blagden Alley/Naylor Court" survey is an architectural resources survey done by Blagden Alley/Naylor Court and Traceries in 1989, for the purpose of completing a methodical review of the historic character of squares 367 and 368 for evaluation of the area's potential for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Squares 367 and 368 (known as Naylor Court and Blagden Alley, respectively) typify an important aspect in the history of the urban development of Washington, D.C. The middle class housing built on the street and alley dwellings, stables, and other the structures in the extensive alleyways represent an important pattern of 19-th century urban development. These two squares contain a mixture of residential, commercial, and auxiliary buildings that illustrate the historic evolution of land use in the City of Washington, particularly the independent development of property facing the public streets versus property facing the alleys.

Included are Building and Structures data sheets, on-site surveys, archival surveys and supporting documentation for all lots in squares 367 and 368. Additional documents include the Survey Narrative Report, Address Report, Square/Lot Report, Comprehensive Report, Completion Report, Bibliography, Maps, Public Meetings, Written Testimony and Black and White Photographs.
