Historic Congressional Cemetery is a microcosm of American and DC history. And little is synonymous with both quite like the White House. Dozens of individuals memorialized at the cemetery are connected to the office of the Presidency. They include cabinet members, vice presidents, assassination conspirators, photographers, architects, wayward sons, secretaries, landladies, and bodyguards. Together, they form a one of kind window into the past, showcasing the history and legacy of the American Presidency all in 35 acres of the nation’s capital.

In honor of George Washington’s Birthday, come and experience this history come to life with Presidential historian, author, and Congressional Cemetery Educator Kurt Deion in a thematic walking tour of the graves, memorials, and locations connected with the Presidents!

Please come prepared with comfortable clothing and shoes, as the tours often stray from the main paths.
