Walking Tours

The best way to see Historic Congressional Cemetery is on foot. The cemetery is open dawn to dusk every day, and you are welcome to wander the grounds at your leisure. Just wear comfortable shoes and watch your step - the ground is uneven and some pathways are over two hundred years old.

Below are our walking tours. Please click on a tour to access a downloadable PDF of the tour for you to download before you come. Printed copies of all tours are also available at the gatehouse, which is open 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, and by appointment.
