Congressional Cemetery Tour

Posted on Oct 23, 2013

The WCG Interns and Fellows were joined by several other WCG professional members for a guided tour of conservation work in Congressional Cemetery on October 18. Howard Wellman lead the tour, pointing out conservation work on the stone tombstones and monuments that has been both successful and problematic. Not only did we learn about conservation of stone, but some of the fascinating history of the cemetery. We were even joined by some friendly four-legged friends during the afternoon.
