Hello! I am working on a documentary that mentions the Tourist Inn. It is mentioned during an interview with a musician that played there in the past. I would love to cut to this photo for a few seconds. I would give you credit in the film. Can you email me? Thanks!

Do you know anything about the saying inside? Just inside the front door it says "leave" then there is a piece missing and it picks up with "rouch behind all ye who enter here". I'm trying to figure out the entire saying and it's meaning but all I can find is your photo. I have a picture of the saying.

I wonder if the building was hit by a car/truck and was repaired, at's why the textured bricks were replaced with smooth ones.

looks like an old english castle... Or even that buildings in Princeton, NJ

Hi there,

I work with a company that is looking for old pictures of the old Laurel Mall, and would love to use this photo. Are you able to give us permission? If so, please email me at and we can discuss specifics.



In 1897, residents of the rural section of Washington, north of Florida Avenue known as Brightwood, got together and decided there should be a Catholic Church in that area of the city. Thus, in 1900, with the assistance of Cardinal Gibbons and a parcel of land donated by one of the members, the construction of the frame church began, On February 3, 1901, the first mass was celebrated in the new Church of the Nativity.

By 1924 it became apparent that there was a huge need for a parish school. During that same year, there was a fire that caused extensive damage to the church. The parishioners again banded together and successfully raised funds to repair the first church and build a new church and a school on the second floor for approximately 400 students. The school opened on September 8, 1925 and the first mass was celebrated in the new church in December of that same year. That building is now the Nativity Catholic Academy.

The parish was flourishing, and the church was too small to accommodate the growing community. In 1933, a large parcel of property on 13th Street, NW was purchased and in 1940 ground was broken on this land for the present structure. The building was completed in 1942 and the first Mass was conducted in lower church on Sunday, September 26, 1942. The cornerstone and dedication of the church took place on December 6, 1942.

I really miss this place.

The town they used while filming the movie "Practical Magic" was Coupeville on Whidbey Island in Washington State. Debi Ward Kennedy says that the production designers painted everything in the town white for the movie. After filming was done, they repainted the buildings their original colors.

The main town on Maria's Island (home to the Owens women) was portrayed by Coupeville, a small sea-front community on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound. Standefer decided to keep to the palette of whites and pale pastel colors and had the entire town painted.

Tourism is an essential part of the local economy so it was decided to keep the main street open during filming. Storefronts were covered with facades while signs informed tourists that the shops were still open for business. The whole town became a part of the filmmaking process; one of the local restaurants doubled as an extras' housing area while clientele at other establishments had a grandstand view of Hollywood moviemaking.

What beautiful and historic home, great shot!, Like + Favorite.
