While a cemetery might not seem like the ideal place for a stroll or a picnic, in the 19th century, places like the Rock Creek Church Yard and Cemetery offered visitors tranquil settings in which they could escape city life. In this walking tour from Washington Walks, you'll get a chance to reconsider cemeteries for their aesthetic beauty. First established in 1719, Rock Creek was later expanded and today features a rolling landscape and pathways that wind beneath groves of trees. You'll stop to admire the artfully crafted sculptures, tombstones and mausoleums of some of the most prominent citizens in the city's history, including writer Gore Vidal, brewer and philanthropist Christian Heurich, and Henry and Marian Adams, whose stunning memorial was designed by August Saint-Gaudens.
