A most interesting place. Beautiful monuments abound. Burial grounds for some of Washington's most famous. Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and countless other Congressmen and Senators are buried here, along with FBI legend J. Edgar Hoover and Eldridge Geary. Who is Eldridge Geary? Founding Father, Diplomat, only Signer of the Declaration of Independence buried within the District of Columbia, Gov of Massachusetts, and Fifth Vice President of the United States. And the Father of Gerrymandering, which was named after him.
The cemetery also enjoys modern use as a dog walk, so please keep the people gate closed at all times.
The cemetery is in the shadow of RFK Stadium, so parking is non- existent on game days.
