Since 1807, the various burials, internments, inurnments, and memorials at Congressional Cemetery have reflected the history of Washington DC and the United States. They provide a unique window into American history, showcasing the American experience in microcosm. And it would be impossible to write the narrative of American history without the story of the American Indian. Dozens American Indians are buried at Congressional Cemetery, including members of the Apache, Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, and Pawnee nations. Come and discover their stories in a thematic and interpretive tour of the grounds with one of our docents.

The tour is rain or shine. The Cemetery is open to off leash dog walking on Sunday.
