The 2019 Around the World Cultural Food Festival will be held at Freedom Plaza on Saturday August 17 from 11am-7pm. Stop #2, White House Visitor Center, will remain open, but please expect re-routes and delays.
We will be closed for Night tours on Saturday evening due to large private event.
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.
