"His band of aging spooks" observing the historic heritage of Observatory Hill

On a hill overlooking the Potomac River, and now the Kennedy Center as well, stands a group of buildings that were instrumental in the formation and development of the United States government's spy agencies, including the current Central Intelligence Agency. Recently planned for development by the US Department of State, these historic buildings were recently listed on the US National Register of Historic Places.
