"We're Lookin' For a Cure" in Historic Congressional Cemetery.

This this National Historic Landmark was founded in 1807 and many notable U.S. residents are interred here. 

Congressmen who passed away in office between 1833 and 1876 are represented by Benjamin Latrobe’s iconic cenotaphs. Congressional Cemetery is still an active burial ground, taking new interments. There are currently over 65,000 burials on 35 acres.

The cemetery is also a dog-walking park, with K-9 Corps membership fees helping to sustain the Cemetery.
