William Wilson Corcoran Store

This landmark holds the name of one of DC’s most prominent financial figures.

Built in 1817, the William Wilson Corcoran Store is associated with one of DC’s famous financial leaders. Other historic sites also bear his name, such as the Corcoran Gallery of Art, with which Corcoran was a major patron of the fine arts, and Corcoran Hall, part of George Washington University. Most importantly, Riggs National Bank, that he and partner George Washington Riggs founded in 1840, situated Corcoran’s legacy as a key figure in DC’s financial history.
