“Architecture of an Asylum: St. Elizabeths 1852–2017”

March 25, 2017 at 12:00 am


Just east of the Anacostia River, St. Elizabeths was one of the first psychiatric facilities to institute humane landscape-architecture features such as panoramic views of Washington and generous outdoor space for patients. Today the 350-acre site is undergoing a huge revitalization, including a $55-million entertainment complex and a new Department of Homeland Security HQ. This exhibit displays artifacts and photos to tell the story of the hospital’s evolution. Go to https://nbm.org for hours and more information.
