City of College ParkThese two structures, built circa 1910 in the Colonial Revival style, represent the first commercial resources in the neighborhood. Both buildings were apartments with ground floor commercial space. The store drew its customers from riders of the trolley line that linked College Park and other nearby towns with downtown Washington. Today, the site retains neighborhood commercial zoning and continues to have a mix of uses.
