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. Then, attendees will take a very special tour—"Uppity Women." This tour will highlight an array of brave and brilliant ladies—famed suffragists,civil rights advocates, madams, journalists, artists, and more—who are now interred in Congressional Cemetery. This tour was created and will be given by journalist and historian Rebecca Roberts, who authored the 2017 book “Suffragists in Washington, DC: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote.”
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!

One of the country's most historic cemeteries, Congressional Cemetery is home to more than 65,000 souls including mayors, madams, gay rights advocates, Disney Imagineers, Supreme Court justices, senators, and the first director of the FBI. It's also believed to be the only cemetery in the world with a dedicated LGBTQ section. Recently the cemetery added a final resting place for furry friends—becoming D.C.'s first known pet cemetery.
