Original Founding Church of Scientology
The restored three-story building was the first headquarters for Scientology throughout the Americas. In his second-floor office, L. Ron Hubbard served as the first Executive Director, overseeing the organization of Churches and authoring the administrative articles and policies that continue to form the organizational structure of all Scientology Churches.
Today, in the fully renovated and restored structure are the chronicles of L. Ron Hubbard’s life in Washington, DC—from his probing George Washington University days in the early 1930s through his Original Thesis on Dianetics authored right around the corner in 1948.
Scientologists now visit the facility to learn more about the life of L. Ron Hubbard and his research breakthroughs in Washington, DC. It is also the site of conferences with government and private sector officials to plan and coordinate the use of L. Ron Hubbard’s solutions to illiteracy, immorality, drugs and crime.
