Day 7

Tenleytown (June 23, 2019)

Back in Tenleytown we wandered by Janney Elementary School and decided to take a look around. The school opened in 1925 and undertook a massive renovation in around 2010.

On the Janney school grounds, but not visible from the street, is this awesome mural by Matthew Willey. Willey has made a personal commitment to hand-paint 50,000 honeybees – the number necessary for a healthy, thriving hive – in murals around the world. You can read more about Willey and his project at

The Good of the Hive

Sitting directly on Tenley Circle is St. Ann Roman Catholic Church. It is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

This American University Law School building, also on Tenley Circle, was built in 1904. It was originally the Immaculata Seminary where the Sisters of Providence taught both boarders and day students from elementary through junior college level.
