Prince William Forest Park

Just about 35 miles from Washington DC lies an area that was once used to teach new spies their trade.
Prince William Forest Park was used by the predecessor of the CIA, what was then known as the Office of Strategic services for a training facility for spies during the years of World War II.
Today you can sleep in the same cabin where a spy for the war effort learned how be a spy.
