    Hendrson Castle, Meridian Hill

    It was to be the crown jewel on a boulevard meant to rival the Champs Élysées—a vision of grandeur concocted in a time of decadence.It’s hard to imagine today, standing on the 16th Street edge of Meridian Hill Park, watching buses, cars, and dogged bikers working their way up.

    Across the street, where the unfortunate backside of a development best described as a facsimile of historically faithful townhouses now stands, stood one of the most legendary palaces of Washington, D.C.’s Gilded Age—Henderson’s Castle.
