NEW! National Cathedral & Dupont Circle Area Day Tour
1 session, 9 hours
First tour the Washington National Cathedral, the 6th largest cathedral in the world serving as a beautiful example of Gothic architecture, to see where national events have been celebrated… national tragedies mourned…and great leaders preached. Travel down Embassy Row to Dupont Circle and visit the historic Mansion on O Street. Designed in 1892 by a U.S. Capitol architect, the mansion features more than 100 rooms of varying architectural, artistic and design periods to showcase one of the most eclectic art collections in the world. (Most everything is available for purchase, so bring your checkbook!) Then step into a National Historic Landmark – the Anderson House. Completed in 1905, it has been The Society of the Cincinnati headquarters since 1938. Discover the Society’s rich and long history while exploring the lives and collections of the home’s first owners, a wealthy couple devoted to public service, travel, philanthropy and more.
