At one end lies the Washington Monument, at the opposite end is the Capitol Building. For more than two hundred years, the monuments of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., have stood proudly by day in tribute to America’s past.
But by night they whisper a warning about the nation’s future.
Classified documents buried inside the National Archives reveal that three key national monuments, the White House, the FDR Memorial (opening 1997) and the proposed World War II Veterans Memorial, are astronomically aligned to the belt stars of the Orion constellation.
Each unique structure was or will be built during a different epoch in American history. But the master site plan for their construction, for the entire city originally called “Washingtonople,” was designed in 1790 by Pierre-Charles L’Enfant, a French architect and Freemason handpicked by George Washington, himself a Freemason.
Furthermore, the terrestrial monuments and their celestial counterparts are set to lock for the first time in 26,000 years, heralding an epic event foreseen by America’s Founding Fathers and ignored by today’s citizens at their peril.
Are the monuments of the National Mall trying to tell us something? Is history about to repeat itself?
And, if so, how?
In WASHINGTONOPLE: The Secret History of America’s Capital, we’ll embark on a wild ride through history and science as we unlock the ancient prophecies encoded into the architecture of America’s monuments.
Using cutting-edge computer simulations and classified blueprints from the Library of Congress, we’ll crack the riddle of Washingtonople and examine a startling new theory, never before revealed, concerning the founding of America and its future. Along the way we’ll discover that America’s national monuments present a fantastic treasure trail – and a warning.
We’ll also explore the secret race against history that has been under way for the last 200 years beneath Washington, D.C., a race involving Egyptologists, White House officials, and a well-funded private organization operating outside the public eye.
What are they looking for?
What is the true meaning of the 193 Masonic stones that line the interior of the Washington Monument, and what’s really in store during the monument’s impending years-long renovation?
What lies behind the mysterious Masonic stone recently discovered at the end of a previously unexplored tunnel deep beneath the Capitol Building? And does America have a date with destiny, a date that’s just around the corner?
These secrets and more are revealed in WASHINGTONOPLE: The Secret History of America’s Capital.
Let’s turn the page and begin the journey now.

Washington, September 21, 1990
*DR. CONRAD YEATS is a fictional character from the blockbuster novel RAISING ATLANTIS . But he swears what he’s saying is true!
Washington, D.C., was born in 1790 out of political necessity.
The new republic of the United States needed a capital city to replace the eight cities which had hosted sessions of the Continental Congress. So America’s first president, George Washington, shouldered the delicate task of selecting a site for the “Federal City” without favoring any one of the 13 former colonies and offending the rest.
Washington chose a ten-square-mile block of land in the District of Columbia, between Maryland and Virginia in 1791. He allegedly chose it because of its proximity to his own property in the northern part of Virginia. And today Washington, D.C., named after the “father of our country,” proudly sits astride the banks of the Potomac River.
Or so the history books tell us.
The reality is that while George Washington was indeed the father of our country, the true father of our nation’s capital was the French architect Washington commissioned to design the new city. His name was Pierre-Charles L’Enfant. And it is L’Enfant’s original blueprint 1 for what has become known as Washington,D.C., that forms the basis of this paper.
1 For the record, this blueprint, discovered beneath the ••••••••••••••••••• of the National Archives and held in secure storage at ••••••••••••••••••••••• under an encoded pseudonym known only by me, predates the “original” L’Enfant plan which was recently “restored” and sealed in a case filled with argon gas in the Library of Congress. A digitalized version of the Library of Congress blueprint is included in this report.
According to official records of the day, French-born L’Enfant was an architect and military engineer who joined the Continental Army and spent the winter of 1777 to 1778 at Valley Forge. There he first met Washington. Both men were Freemasons and formed a bond within that secret Society, the nature of which remains murky. What is clear is that 12 years later, in 1790, Washington entrusted L’Enfant to design the capital city of the new American republic, which L’Enfant called “Washingtonople.” The name didn’t stick, of course. But much of L’Enfant’s original vision did, with awesome consequences.
3. LAND OF THE FREEMASONS
Founded in England during the eighteenth century, the modern Masonic order has often figured in conspiracy theories as a secret cabal that has influenced or controlled history. That’s due in no small part to its unknown ancient origins, secret rituals, passwords and other arcania.2
What do the Freemasons really stand for? Hard to say these days, but during the Enlightenment its key ideals were tolerance and political liberty. Which explains why, by the time of the American Revolution, nearly 150 lodges existed throughout the colonies.3
It is not the intent of this paper to denigrate or deify the Freemasons (especially since some of them, as this paper will shortly prove, are most likely members of the federal commission reviewing this research). Rather, this section seeks merely to frame the historical mindset of the architects of Washingtonople circa 1790, namely Washington and L’Enfant, two of the most prominent Freemasons of their day.
Let’s begin by quoting from what many consider to be the absolute authority on Freemasonry, which claims the Masons worship “all the gods of the Ancient Mysteries,” specifically “the Sun, the Moon, and other bright luminaries of Heaven.”4
The Sun was figuratively said “to die and be born again” at the Winter Solstice, and the Masons “personified the Sun and worshipped him under the name of Osiris.”5
Another old and venerated Masonic book takes pains to prove that Freemasonry extends well before 1717, all the way back to the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries. An entire chapter titled “Sun Worship” offers a detailed account of the veneration the ancient Egyptians gave the Sun. Another chapter presents the “mythical story of Osiris,” because it “formed not only the basis of the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries” but of Freemasonry as well. 6
- 2 Nobody really knows just how far back in history the Freemasons go. As early as the 12th century, the Vatican’s Code of Canon Law prohibited church followers from joining “Masonic sects or any other similar associations which plot against the church.”
- 3 Today, more than 6 million Americans represent nearly 75% of the total Freemason membership. Known chiefly as a charitable “country club” network, a typical Masonic lodge has more in common with Fred Flintstone’s “Moose Lodge” than an evil cabal. But its traditions of secrecy and rituals persist, along with the considerable pains the movement takes to trace its origins back to antiquity.

These Freemason references to Osiris are key, because the celestial counterpart of Osiris is the constellation of Orion. And it is the three belt stars of Orion to which three monuments of L’Enfant’s original vision for the National Mall are aligned.
More important, as this paper will conclude, three of the terrestrial landmarks of the National Mall will “lock” with these three belt stars of Orion at a “Doomsday” date predetermined by the Founding Fathers.
By following the intricate “map” the Founding Fathers left us, both above and below the grounds of the National Mall, we will be able to calculate the date of convergence.
Knowledge of that date will allow us to deduce its celestial significance and meaning, thus giving us the most of what precious little time there is to prepare ourselves and our nation for what lies ahead.
