Frye Store to Open in Historic Building in September

Frye, the oldest continuously operating footwear company in the United States, will open its third United States location in Washington, D.C., in a few weeks in a building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Georgetown store, at 1066 Wisconsin Ave., NW, will occupy the former space of Papa-Razzi Restaurant. Frye's 2,700-square-foot store will be located in the historic Vigilant Firehouse, the oldest extant firehouse in D.C., which first housed Engine 5, now located on Dent Place.

The Georgetown store will open early September, a company spokesperson said. It will join Frye's Boston and New York City stores. The Frye Company -- known for boots, shoes, handbags and accessories -- also plans to open a store in Chicago this fall.

Founded in Massachusetts in 1863, Frye is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a collection of footwear of its most iconic styles. With its boots, worn by soldiers, sailors, singers and actors, the company has fans that have ranged from Sarah Jessica Parker to General George Patton to John Lennon. A pair of Frye boots is even on exhibit on the Smithsonian.
