A Look Inside an Abandoned Subterranean Trolley Station Under Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C.

In the latest installment of the web series Unusual Spaces, PBS Digital Studios visits a vast, abandoned trolley station that lies underneath Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. The 75,000-square-foot complex of tunnels and stations has been abandoned for most of the last 50 years. However, an organization called the Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground recently signed a lease on the station and is working to transform it into a cultural destination.

Each day, thousands of residents, commuters and visitors traverse Washington DC’s Dupont Circle, one of the most historic and iconic neighborhoods in the nation’s capital. Below its well-traveled streets, however, lies a secret unknown to many who pass above: 75,000 square feet of abandoned tunnels that have remained inaccessible for most of the last 50 years.
