Washington, DC

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

Thanks to Dr. Dion for asking about the famed “Mystery Silo” in the 200 block of H Street, NW. We last broached the subject back in August 2019.

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.”
