    I wasn't sure what to expect, but booked a Sunday 1 pm tour, paid $5 online and took my chances. I don't usually enjoy guided tours, but was delighted by Hoff's very personal walk around the cemetery. He shared history, personal reflections and interesting perspectives as we walked under the snowing cherry trees. It was a chance to reflect on life's seasons and a very unexpected oasis in the city. I hlghly recommend a visit. And bring a picnic.

    The cemetery was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting. I really liked learning about the history of the cemetery and some of the people buried there. The tour was two hours and some of the walking was up rather steep hills. So keep this in mind if you decide to go. I highly recommend this tour.

    A hidden gem. The oldest stone I found was marked 1818, but there are supposed to be graves there back to 1719. Large cemetery with recent burials.

    The U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery Cemetery sometime is known by the Soldiers' Home Cemetery. It is located next to the Soldier's Home and President Lincoln's Cottage. The Cemetery is part of the U.S. National Cemetery. The cemetery was established after the Battle of Bull Run as the place to honor soldiers in combat. As an historic significant as it is, the cemetery is lesser known to locals and visitors in comparison to the Arlington Cemetery. It is also out of the way for out of town visitors. Most people who visit this place is part of the visit to thePresident Lincoln's Cottagethe. If you visit D.C. and visit the National Shrine, it is worth the time to visit this historical place. It is a few minutes drive from the National Shrine and plenthy of on street parking spaces. The Cemetery is open for public during daytime.
