Murals of Historic Silver Spring

Artist: Mame Cohalon

‚ÄčAcorn 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. This park might be small, but it is chock-full of good stuff to see.  Nestled up to the first Silver Spring Discovery building, DCTC, is a quaint little park with an acorn gazebo and beautiful murals.  Previously the Caldor Building, it was the Caldor Company that commissioned the five-panel mural by artist Mame Cohalon and restored the gazebo and park.
