Mission Statement

The mission of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Congressional Cemetery is to serve the community as an active burial ground and conserve the physical artifacts, buildings, and infrastructure of the cemetery; to celebrate the American heritage represented by those interred here; restore and sustain the landscape, protect the Anacostia River watershed, and manage the grounds as an accessible community resource.

Description

The Congressional Cemetery was neglected and nearly abadoned for decades, culminating in being placed on the National Trust's list of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 1997. Since that time, largely due to an incredible number of volunteers as well as donations, the cemetery has stabilized. Currently we are striving to return the Congressional Cemetery to the beautiful landscape it was formerly. Please consider being a part of this effort to save an important part of American history.
