Det skal I lave

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!
