The Schneider Row Houses are the row houses built between 1889 and 1892 on the north and south sides of the 1700 block of Q Street NW in Washington, D.C.[1]

They were built by architect Thomas Franklin Schneider (1859-1938), who designed about 2,000 buildings in the area[citation needed], including the Cairo Apartment Building one block to the east. Schneider paid $175,000 for the land on the north side of the street and developed the entire block at once.[1]

The houses are part of the Dupont Circle Historic District as listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]
