Description 

The WRECO Bus Garage at 2112 Georgia Avenue NW is Washington, DC's first purpose-built garage for servicing and storing transit buses. It meets National Register Criterion A and C under the Multiple Property Document Streetcar and Bus Resources of Washington, D.C., 1862-1962, because it is associated with events that have contributed to the broad patterns of our history namely the development of mass transit systems in Washington, DC and the transportation-oriented commercial development of the area around the intersections of th Street, U Street, Georgia Avenue, and Florida Avenue NW.
