WTOP Radio reports Arlington's historic preservation agency quietly installed the marker this month. It was approved in 2008. Now it stands near the garage entrance on North Nash Street near Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn.

This is the place where Mark Felt, the FBI's second in command, met Woodward to discuss Watergate. Felt provided information that exposed the Nixon administration's obstruction of the FBI's investigation. The marker says they met at the garage six times in 1972 and 1973. Nixon resigned in 1974.

Felt revealed his role in 2005.

Historic Preservation Coordinator Michael Leventhal says the sign simply marks the site of a historical event.
