Only at Congressional Tours 2023

By Historic Congressional Cemetery (other events)

19 Dates Through Nov 25, 2023

Join us for a guided tour of Congressional Cemetery! Over 65,000 people are interred at Congressional Cemetery, ranging from 1807 all the way until the present day. Their story is our story and many of them lived noteworthy and extraordinary lives. Come and learn from one of our expert docents who will share the stories of some of our interred residents in an approximately 1-to-1.5-hour tour of the beautiful and scenic cemetery grounds. This tour takes a broad look at the cemetery's history and captures the life and times of some of our most notable interred residents. 

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

The Cemetery is closed to dogs on Saturdays from 11am - 3pm. 

Reservations are required. $5 donation per person.

Saturday tours begin at 11 am, rain or shine, and comfortable attire, including footwear, is strongly encouraged as tours often stray from the main paths. Visitors may meet docents at the front gate.
