Built in 1895, the stairway connects Prospect and 36th Streets with M Street, NW in Georgetown. The 75 steps were featured in the scene from the hit 1973 horror movie “The Exorcist” in which the character Father Karras fell to his death down the steps from a nearby house. The steps were covered in foam padding to protect the stuntman who had to film the iconic sequence twice. A plaque recognizes the steps as a D.C. landmark and important piece of the city’s movie history.
