H-DC / DC History
A frequent question is "How many circles are there in Washington?"
In the L'Enfant City there are:
with Columbus Circle at Union Station
Lincoln Memorial Circle
Peace Monument Circle (bet you can't guess where it is)
Garfield Circle (ditto)
In the city overall there are 28 circles so named in the city's street index.
those above plus---
However--there are at least a dozen traffic circles in the housing
development at Bolling Air Force Base. Those are not in the city's street
