Chills, thrills and intriguing mysteries crowd the haunted and historic homes of Washington's Lafayette Park in this tour presented by Washington Walks. Violent quarrels, vicious attacks, murder, suicide -- there's a lot going on in this seven-acre stretch of the city. On this eerie tour, you'll see the homes of Navy hero Stephen Decatur, as well as man of letters Henry Adams and his troubled wife Clover. Relive the fateful night of April 14, 1865, when the grim reaper stalked more than Abraham Lincoln. The tour begins at the house considered the most haunted home in the city: The Octagon. While this walk does not include interior visits to any of the buildings featured, the stories behind them will leave you happy to simply view them from the outside.
