Ward Circle

Ward Circle is a traffic circle at the intersection of Nebraska Avenue and Massachusetts avenues in Northwest, Washington, DC. The land on three sides of Ward Circle is owned by American University, while the fourth is temporary home to the headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security. The circle contains a statue of Maj. Gen. Artemas Ward. Ward Circle was constructed for the sculpture.[1]

The statue was completed in 1938 without direct pedestrian access to the circle.
