Our curiosity finally peaked today and we ventured up the drive to this imposing building. We had hoped to be able to take the tour of the building, which included the elevator up to the top for the promised fabulous view of D.C. Although it was difficult to believe we were told by the person at the admissions desk that they couldn’t do any tours or allow anyone to go in the elevator because he was the only staff member in the building. We’re talking a massive granite building here. Anyway, we were allowed to wander through the two floors that were open.
What we were able to see was GW statues, busts, murals, paintings, and memorabilia along with Masonic aprons, trowels, and ephemera.
We are now watching the Patriot’s Game in our motel room in Williamsburg – Go Pats.
