Tour a D.C. Manse Designed by Library of Congress Architect

While there's little to no chance you'll be able to take up residence in the Library of Congress, you can still live in a condo designed by the Library of Congress architect, Paul J. Pelz. Constructed around 1901, this Embassy Row mansion known as the Argyle House was designed for a Navy Commander before it was sold and used by the Costa Rican and Salvadorean Legations. Later, the wife of Joseph Hirshhorn, the founder of the Hirshhorn Museum, used the house to store a portion of her art collection inside. The development wasn't converted into a condo building until the Great Depression.
