Чем вы займетесь

Join us for an evening of wine, spirits, and stories in the cemetery that J. Edgar Hoover, Madam Mary Anne Hall, Marion Berry, and other notables call their eternal home. You’ll wander the historic grounds at sunset, beverage in hand, and enjoy wine and light snacks in the very vault in which Dolley Madison once laid.

From there, we’ll join Jeffrey Rollins, who has been a docent at Congressional Cemetery since 2014, for “Iconography.” On this exclusive tour, we’ll explore some of the most important features of the grounds’ more than 14,000 headstones. We’ll discover drape-covered urns, broken columns, an hourglass, a lamb, and more—all telling us a bit about the lives of the people who rest beneath.

Hi. I’m Matt, and I host experiences with Atlas Obscura.

I’m a D.C. area native who loves to discover new, hidden, and mysterious places. I am a journalist who tells the untold and forgotten stories that have made D.C. one of the greatest cities in the world. My work has been published in local and national media. I frequently appear on radio and television shows, including hosting “Hidden City” on WAMU, D.C.’s NPR affiliate. For five years, I’ve worked with Congressional Cemetery to offer this experience. You can catch me exploring D.C. neighborhoods, enjoying local restaurants, and talking with everyone I meet!

One of the country's most historic cemeteries, Congressional Cemetery is home to more than 65,000 souls including mayors, madams, gay rights advocates, Disney Imagineers, Supreme Court justices, senators, and the first director of the FBI. It's also believed to be the only cemetery in the world with a dedicated LGBTQ section. Recently the cemetery added a final resting place for furry friends—becoming D.C.'s first known pet cemetery.

I enjoyed the tour of Congressional Cemetery, and Matt was a great host. The tour guides weren’t as informed as I would have hoped, though - hopefully they gain experience as they lead more of the Iconography tours.

A fantastic way to learn more about one of the city's oldest sites and neighborhoods, including how the space is being used today. Friendly and knowledgable guides. Love the small group setting and pre-tour snacks and bevies in the crypt!

Very fun. Loved the pre-tour snacks and beverages, and the chance to get acquainted with others. All leaders associated with the tour were friendly and welcoming.

Another fantastic Atlas Obscura tour! Attended with my parents (their first AO tour and first time at the Congressional Cemetery) and they were fascinated! They loved learning about the cemetery's residents and the iconography on the headstones.
