Georgetown Treasures: Joint Tour of Tudor Place and Oak Hill Cemetery

October 3, 2015 @ 10:00 am

History lives “around the block” in Georgetown, and behind closed doors at Tudor Place. Take a look behind the scenes at Tudor Place and learn all about the storied Oak Hill Cemetery nearby on this joint guided tour. Oak Hill, the resting place of capital luminaries and heroes of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, is also the site of the famed chapel by James Renwick, architect of the Smithsonian Castle and New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. After leaving the cemetery, join docents at Tudor Place to see places normally closed to the public, including a 1960s bomb shelter.

The tour will take place from 10am – noon on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Members pay $15, non-members $20.
