Artist and Russian immigrant Nicolai Cikovsky interviewed 79-year-old Blair Lee, former U.S. Senator (D-Md.), born here in 1857. Lee had many memories of what the community, then named Sligo, looked like. the main crossroads of Sligo were Washington & Brookeville Turnpike and Ashton, Colesville & Sligo Turnpike (Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road). The Eagle Inn, on the right side of the mural, stood on the southwest corner of this intersection.
