Welcome to Ghosts of DC

You’re here because you’re interested in forgotten history. Well, you’re in the right place, because this is a blog about the lost and untold history of Washington, D.C. Check out this great colorized photo of Lewis Powell, one of the Lincoln conspirators. How about this story about Charles Lindbergh playing horseshoes with Herbert Hoover? When was Concorde’s first commercial transatlantic flight, and where did it land? Check out some film footage of Teddy Roosevelt taking a walk outside the White House, or read about his lost ring (which is still lost in Rock Creek Park).

You’ll love Ghosts of DC. Thanks for checking us out!
