In fitting real estate news for President’s Day, UrbanTurf has learned that Vice President Hubert Humphrey’s former co-op in Southwest has been listed for sale.

Humphrey served as vice president under Lyndon Johnson and was a two-time U.S. senator from Minnesota. He was the Democratic nominee in an eventful 1968 presidential race, but lost to Richard Nixon.

During his time in DC, Humphrey and his wife Muriel lived in a two-bedroom plus den co-op at Harbour Square, a 45 year-old, 440-unit complex in Southwest that overlooks the Potomac River (map). The 2,330 square-foot unit has a number of balconies that offer views in three different directions and is outfitted with some vintage touches (crown molding and built-ins) and modern amenities (surround sound speaker system).

Harbour Square is a building with a variety of amenities itself, including round-the-clock security, on-site management and maintenance, a library, a pool, and a fitness center. In addition to Humphrey, it has also been home to Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell and Admiral William Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President Eisenhower.
