President Taft

12 Stop 12

Just inside the main gates of the cemetery you can find the grave of the nation’s 27th President, William Howard Taft. He is the only President who also served as Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. His monument is a tall brown granite structure sculpted by James Earl Frazer. Taft lays to rest with his wife Helen “Nellie” Taft who was instrumental in bringing the cherry blossom trees to Washington DC.
