“A giant Acorn Gazeebo”

Constructed circa the 1850s, this acorn-shaped gazebo can be found in Acorn Park, located near the intersection of East-West Highway and Newell Street, in Silver Spring, Maryland (by the new Discovery Channel Production Facility).  The park is all that remains of Francis Preston Blair's estate, "Silver Spring," named after his discovery in 1840 of a nearby mica-speckled spring.

Worth the photo opportunity if you are staying in the area but if you are just passing though it is not worth the driving hassle of the city.
