The Exorcist Steps

  • Address:
    36th and Prospect Streets, NW
    Washington, DC 20007
Overview

Yelp

Between Prospect Street and M Street in Georgetown, there are 97 stone steps which have been forever memorialized in cinematic history.  Before 1973 they were known as the “Hitchcock Steps,” but a classic horror movie called “The Exorcist” changed that name for good.  Written by Georgetown graduate William Peter Blatty, “The Exorcist” gained a huge following, and several Georgetown sites where filming took place, including these steps, became well known.  The narrow, steep steps will send a chill down even the most jaded of spines.
