Carter G. Woodson Home, Historic Structure Report - 2008


The development of the home can be divided into five distinct periods:

• Period 1 (1872-1879) – The period of the original construction when used as a single family residence.
• Period 2 (1880-1921) – The period when the two story addition was added onto the house. During this time the house was used as both a single family and multi-tenant dwelling.
• Period 3 (1922-1950) – During this period Dr. Carter G. Woodson purchased the home and lived there while also using it for offices for the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.
• Period 4 (1951-1971) – The period during which the Association continued to use the building as their headquarters.
• Period 5 (1972-Present) – Period after which the Association moved out.

This Historic Structure Report establishes Period 3 (1922-1950) as the Period of Significance due to Dr. Woodson both living in the house and operating the ASALH out of the house. It is his association with the house during this period which merited listing it in the National Register of Historic Places and a designation as a National Historic Landmark.
