Author Peter Penczer explores the Mall's three distinct lives. During its early decades, the Mall was little more than a pasture. In the 1870's, the Army Corps of Engineers created a picturesque park where gravel paths would through dense plantings and around ornate Victorian-style buildings. In the 1930's, the National Park Service swept away the Victorian landscaping and replaces it with the rows of American elm trees and wide-open spaces that are familiar to visitors today.
