Home designed by Ehrick Rossiter contained Freemason symbolism

WASHINGTON — At every corner, beneath you and above you and to all sides, the inscrutably familiar symbolism of the Freemason organization is hidden in plain sight. This historic home is like a dollar bill—if a dollar bill was priceless.
Think of that pyramid and unblinking illuminated eye on the back of a dollar; these kinds of symbols are methodically carved or built into the walls of a house that has been revitalized in Washington, and so are the squares and the suns that denote the historic and quietly influential fraternity.
These icons are found in the most cleverly apt places. A ceiling lamp hangs from a depiction of a glowing sun, suns are found in fireplace mantles, and, in fact, in any place the image could illuminate. Consider the circular window on the due solar west end of the home.
