It’s one of D.C.’s most hidden monuments and it’s worth a closer look — if you can travel underground to get there!
In today’s edition of “Matt About Town,” WTOP’s Matt Kaufax explores the fascinating backstory behind another obscure monument: Braddock’s Rock in Foggy Bottom.
Take a trip back to 1755, when British General Edward Braddock came ashore, and learn about this rock’s small-world connection to America’s first president, George Washington. Follow along as Matt finds out how, even though it’s barely visible today, this rock provided the building blocks for some of D.C.’s most iconic government buildings.
