Hi. I'm Sarah, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I’m Congressional Cemetery’s Director of Programs and Special Events and excited to be working at the historic site that the Washington Post dubbed as “America's Hippest Cemetery."

A nationally recognized leader in preservation, our cemetery hosts numerous serious and fun events throughout the year including races, screenings, beehive tending as well as welcoming members of the "K-9 Corps.” We are also believed to be the world’s only cemetery with a dedicated LGBT section and is the future home of the National LGBT Veterans Memorial.

Before working in D.C., I was the Superintendent at First State Heritage Park in Dover, DE, the state's first urban "park without boundaries.” While there, I loved giving lantern tours in historic cemeteries and creating themed monthly programs.
