The L. Ron Hubbard house near Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. is truly a unique place. Using photographs from the 1950s and 1960s, the house has been meticulously recreated as it was when Hubbard crafted a bulk of his writings. Considered the “founding church,” the house is also where Hubbard held the first few meetings for the Church of Scientology. 

The house contains a wide array of memorabilia from all stages of Hubbard’s life. Starting with his youth in the far east, and spanning the course of World War II. Inside the house, visitors can view Hubbard’s recreated office, tea parlor, and a collection of his writings.
