Root in a Romanesque Revival style in 1891 and had numerous additions and renovations over the years. For almost 100 years, streetcars would find their way to this locale for repairs and be rerouted for the country’s capital city.

Being in the nation’s capital gives you access to both culture and convenience. Accommodations are plentiful for out-of-town guests and there are numerous options for dining and entertainment. Enjoy a walk along the National Mall, visit the Lincoln Memorial, and get lost among all the museums.
