A grotesque Darth Vader on a church, a giant chair, the bigger moving staircase in the western hemisphere, a faithful replica of the Holy Land for those who can not make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem, the oldest continually operating airport in the world, the only embassy state in the nation …

Far from the crowds and clichés, Washington D.C. is a treasure trove hidden, revealed only to the most curious, whether resident or visitor.

An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew the city well or who would like to find his hidden face.


*Secret Washington D.C. won a Bronze Award in the 2018 North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) Travel Media Awards Competition*


Born at the University Hospital named for old George himself, Sharon Pendana left Washington after high school to pursue her fashion dreams in New York City where she unearthed sartorial treasures and created narratives through wardrobe for print, television and film. She launched The Trove to profile some of the fascinating creatives she encountered along the way. Returning to D.C. to care for her ailing mother, she set about to rediscover her hometown, uncovering hidden gems and sharing their back stories, just as she always has.
