National Cathedral & Dupont Circle
1 session, 8.5 hours
Depart FCC and head south to our Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC. Our first stop will be at the Washington National Cathedral – a beautiful example of Gothic architecture. It is the 6th largest cathedral in the world and took 87 years to build! Then head down Embassy Row to Dupont Circle and the quirky O Street Mansion. Today, the property consists of more than 100 rooms of varying architectural, artistic and design periods. Be sure to bring your checkbook because all of the art you’ll see is available for sale. Finally, stop by the Anderson House, a National Historic Landmark, completed in 1905. Our docent-led tour reveals the history of the Society, the significance of the American Revolution, and the lives and collections of the home’s first owners.
Note: A boxed lunch and all admissions are included in the price of the tour. No refunds after close of business on 3/25.
