In a city rich with history, it may be one of Washington’s best-kept secrets. Congressional Cemetery is more than 200 years old — the final resting place of composer John Philip Sousa and former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. After years of near abandonment, experts from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History are leading a restoration mission at Congressional. We’ll learn more about that restoration work and the museum’s long and eclectic history.
- Patrick Crowley Chair, Board of Directors, Congressional Cemetery
- Douglas Owsley Head, Division of Physical Anthropology, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
- Laurie Burgess Associate Chair, Department of Anthropology, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
