This five-story 1845-47 row house was originally constructed for James Brown and Edward Boonen Graves. It was home to the Social Reform Club, which included a who’s who of labor, political, and social reform leaders of the turn of the last century, including Samuel Gompers, Lillian Wald, and Mary White Ovington.
