A Scavenger Hunt Under the Shadow of the Obelisk

Did you know that both Dan Brown, as well as Nicolas Cage, have made movies concerning the iconography and hidden meanings behind some of the Hill's biggest icons. There's a reason for that.

Washington DC is swamped in folklore. In weird, almost occult, superstition and meaning. some of our nation's forefathers believed in the power of faith, of Masonic texts, of the strength of deities, and the great beyond- and their beliefs, as founders and progenitors of this great city, can be seen everywhere. Join us as we uncover their meaning, their hidden secrets, and understand what drove them to be carved in the first place, stamped on the face of Washington DC.

"Felt like Tom Hanks's character in all those movies. Really fascinating stuff. Down to earth and full of cool little data dumps."
