Description

Originally built in 1887, the Giddings School was enlarged by a major addition in 1934. The addition included 12 classrooms and an auditorium and was built in the Colonial Revival style.

The J.R. Giddings school is considered a historically significant building due to its role as the first all-black public school in Washington, DC.

The school was sold to the private sector in the 1990s and is now Results Gym.
