Join historian Jeff Trinca on a tour exploring the more architectural side of Congressional Cemetery on October 30th at 2pm for approximately 2 hours.

Highlights will include the graves of notable Washingtonian Architects interred at the cemetery including William Thornton and George Hadfield (architects of the Capitol), Robert Mills (Washington Monument, Treasury, east wing of the White House amongst others), and Joseph Bruff (architectural designer of numerous treasury buildings).  Also see the prototypical burial markers designed by Benjamin Latrobe to commemorate high ranking government officials.
