Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson moved into this bungalow in 1981, and Dischord Records has been associated with it since then. It served as the practice space and residence of Minor Threat, including some of the seminal photos associated with them taken on the porch. The band split the $525 rent, but couldn't afford to pay for heating oil, so they would sit around in sleeping bags.

Ian MacKaye eventually gained ownership for the house, and today it serves as an office space for Dischord Records.
