Washington, DC


2nd/3rd Mass. and H Street, NW

Lauren asks: “Anyone know the history on this building? On the corner of H & 2nd NW.”

We used to get this question like clockwork but were last asked back in 2015.  We’ve previously learned that this is a ventilation shaft for the 395 highway tunnel below. The artist responsible for the awesome mural, Val E. Lewton, passed away in 2015.

Others have commented that: “It’s been known unofficially for years as the Nixon Memorial.”
