Biographical / Historical

The Farnsboro is located at 2129 Florida Avenue, N.W., and was converted to condominiums in the late 1970s. The Tenants Association was formed in 1975 to negotiate with the landlord, Lester Carpenter Leonard, regarding rents and maintenance problems at the building. Later the tenants contested the conversion of the building to a condominium and the eviction of renters.
