Dark Side of Dupont & Embassy Row

Interested in a different view of Washington, DC? Join us as we venture through the downtown streets on our Dupont Circle and Embassy Row tour discussing stories of the dark side. From curses and assassinations at the embassies to the home of the accidental inventor of the electric chair. These shrouded mansions built and then abandoned by millionaires were once lived in by wild women and philandering men.

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 11.44.57This is a tour, while not overly gruesome or scary is a little bit more humor than horror, covers adult topics such as affairs and assassinations – though not in detail.

Sights we see on the tour:

  • Home of Michael Palmer and the unfortunate bombing attempt
  • Embassy Row
  • Curse of the Hope Diamond
  • George Westinghouse’s affiliation with the electric chair
  • Dupont Circle

…and much more!
