Trespass into the past and discover the secrets of some of Congressional Cemetery’s “residents.” Soul Strolls, the Cemetery’s annual twilight tours, explore the stories of individuals buried here through guided tours and costumed interpreters. Experience the history of this hallowed ground exactly the way it should be experienced in October – in twilight and darkness, happening upon vignettes and individuals under the guidance of one of our “Dozen Decent Docents.”

Soul Strolls take place over four nights, October 18th-19th and October 25th-26th. Hour-long tours depart every 15 minutes between 7 and 10 pm for our Friday tours, and 6 and 10 pm for our Saturday tours. Beer, wine, and cider will be for sale at our cash bar in the Chapel. Adult tickets are $25; children 12 and under are $12. Attendees can arrive early to grab a glass of wine and browse our HCC gift shop.
